Healthy Families Hillsborough (HFH) is a nationally accredited, evidence based program designed to support each parent by offering wrap around support during and after your pregnancy. Sponsored by the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County, Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida and the State of Florida, Department of Children and Families, we offer personal and emotional support, referrals to other services like Early Steps and help set goals that are individual to you. Services are voluntary and offered for free and flexible enough to work with your busy schedule.
The first step…
Anyone can make a referral to HFH. If you would like to refer yourself call (813) 233-2800 to speak to someone. We will work with you to identify how we can provide services that are designed for you as a parent.
A Family Resource Coordinator will meet with you to further explore what resources you as a parent are in need of. After this discussion, you may be provided referrals to services in your community that can help you meet your needs and goals.
A Family Support Worker, representing the language and culture in your community, may offer on-going support. They can begin working with you as early as when you are pregnant or after the baby is born, before the baby turns 3 months. Services are voluntary and can last up until your child’s 5th birthday.
We provide free interpreters for applicants and clients. Disabled applicants can request a reasonable accommodation/auxiliary aid by contacting our Single Point of Contact at (813) 233-2966 (Barbara Macelli).
