Birth & Beyond and the Family Resource Center
Birth & Beyond provides a home visitation program for families with infants and toddlers as well as a Family Resource Center that serves the general community.
The Birth & Beyond Home Visitation Program is for pregnant women and families with new babies (0 to 3 months old) who live in Sacramento County and who do not have an open case with Child Protective Services. Home visitation services may be offered until the child is five years old. The family is assigned a home visitor who will put parents in touch with supportive services for the family such as parenting classes to help nurture children's development. Birth & Beyond also helps these families get connected with the community, access prenatal care, obtain health coverage for children, and to meet the many other needs and challenges parents have in raising their children.
The Family Resource Center is open to anyone in the community; there are no eligibility requirements. The Family Resource Center, in North Highlands on Watt Avenue, offers UC Davis Clinic prenatal care for families who qualify. We also have Family Movie Nights, parenting classes, several types of support groups, after school programs, child development groups, plus many other resources.
We are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you have any questions regarding the Home Visitation Program you can contact Maggie Lopez at 916-679-3925. For questions about the Family Resource Center, call Christie Gonzales at the same number.
