What Is It?
Family Spirit combines the use of paraprofessionals from the community as home visitors and a culturally focused, strengths-based curriculum
as a core strategy to support young families. Parents gain knowledge and skills to promote healthy development and positive lifestyles for themselves and their children. This program has been developed, implemented, and evaluated by the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health in partnership with the Navajo, White Mountain Apache, and San Carlos Apache Tribes.
Family Spirit envisions a future where every community, regardless of socioeconomic status, will have access to an evidence-based, culturally competent strategy for promoting optimal health and well-being for parents and young children.
To empower families to promote healthy development and positive lifestyles for mothers and their young children across the lifespan.
