Special News

This past month, Mandy Duley and Brittany Silvestri, our supervisors for both locations, received their Lactation Counseling Certificate. This is a big step for Healthy Families in allowing direct support to families that we serve who may be breastfeeding or thinking about doing so. CLCs answer questions, teach how to breastfeed properly, and offer support when problems arise.

      At Healthy Families, we aim to...

  • Achieve positive health outcomes for families
