Permanency, Safety, and Lifelong Connections From the Start
Welcome Home Baby, a member of the Contra Costa First 5 Healthy Families Collaborative, is a home visiting service for all families with expecting parents or infants under 4 months old residing in Contra Costa County, California (Martinez, Concord, Bay Point, Pittsburgh, Antioch and Oakley). We have provided home visitation services since 2000 and are highly respected by our community partners.
The program helps strengthen attachment between children and parents, enhances parent bonding, and reduces isolation by connecting families to community resources. Our qualified team is dedicated to helping children live happy, healthy lives with their parents. Each family receives a personalized service plan, including a research-based curriculum with hands on multi-sensory activities that boost children’s intellectual, physical and emotional development.

Parents have begun a fantastic journey with their child and we are excited to join them along the way. Babies grow and change so fast that it is smart to discover what to expect from them before it happens. Welcome Home Baby Family Support Specialists can help you understand and deal with all of the stages parents and their babies go through. We have bilingual Family Support Specialists English/Spanish and all of them are familiar with the local community. A Welcome Home Baby Family Support Specialist visits families to ensure the family has the support it needs to care for and support a new family member.
