Healthy Families is a free family support and parent coaching program for pregnant or first-time parents, age 23 and under, living in Franklin and Hampshire Counties, the North Quabbin region, and the towns of Chester and Ludlow in Hampden County.

Due to COVID-19, Healthy Families staff provide support to participants through in-person outdoor and virtual visits. Referrals can be submitted through the online form available at www.communityaction.us/healthy-families or by calling the listed program numbers.
