Healthy Families Loudoun

Did you know that INMED’s Healthy Families Loudoun (HFL) program ranks among the top 5 of such programs in Virginia? Since joining the Healthy Families Virginia network in 1998, HFL has met or exceeded target outcomes consistently.

Healthy Families Loudoun is accredited by Prevent Child Abuse America’s Healthy Families America (HFA) program, an evidence-based, nationally recognized home visiting program model designed to work with overburdened families who are at risk for child abuse and neglect and other adverse childhood experiences. Loudoun County ranks third among Northern Virginia counties for reported child abuse cases, according to Stop Child Abuse Now.

“In all years, [INMED’s] data collection has been exemplary, their annual report cards have met all objectives,” noted Lee Huntington, lead evaluator for Healthy Families Virginia. “In FY 2017, HFL’s outcome evaluation was similarly excellent. They attained high levels of prenatal care visits and the children born to participating mothers had normal births and full birth weights.”

Kudos to our dedicated family support workers for their tireless work to ensure at-risk parents have the skills they need to raise healthy, self-sufficient children.
