Muhlenberg County Health Department H.A.N.D.S.

Health Access Nurturing Development Services (H.A.N.D.S) is a voluntary home visiting program for all 1st time parents residing in Kentucky. Services can begin during pregnancy or anytime before a child is 3 months old. H.A.N.D.S. is an educational service that promotes healthy pregnancies, births, healthy child growth and development, healthy and safe homes, and self-sufficient families.

The H.A.N.D.S. program is free to all 1st time moms and/or dads, regardless of their age or income. In addition, we are now able to offer this free program to any new or expectant parent regardless of their having had a previous child(ren). The staff of H.A.N.D.S. believe that a child’s parents are the most important people in that child’s life. A parent is the first and most important teacher a child will ever have.

H.A.N.D.S. offers information and support to parents as they build a healthy, safe and stimulating environment in which their baby can grow and develop.
