Healthy Families Prince George's


Healthy Families Prince George's is a voluntary program that provides support to first time mothers under the age of 25, and to the children's fathers. Services include prenatal support, intensive home visiting and mentoring services.

Healthy Families Prince George's is designed to improve birth outcomes, promote healthy child development and enhance family functioning through the provision of supportive services that synchronize existing prenatal, pediatric and mental health service delivery and assist the child and parents to realize their potential. Healthy Families Prince George's works with parents until the child reaches the age of 5.

In support of the Healthy Families Prince George's Program, Adam's House provides medical assessment, treatment, job training, parenting classes and other support to fathers.
