Roanoke Valley Home Visiting Referral Center

The Council of Community Services, in partnership with the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Commonwealth University, was selected as one of four pilot sites across the state to improve coordination and access to home visiting programs. Unfortunately, this pilot program ended in 2016 and the Council of Community Services is no longer funded to operate the Roanoke Valley Home Visiting Referral Center. 

Please see the information listed below to assist you with navigating the home visiting process.

Home Visiting is a service that helps new parents and parents-to-be get their children off to a healthy start. “Home visitor” is a name used for a trained outreach worker, family specialist, or nurse who provides education, information and resources to families with young children. Home visiting happens in the convenience of your home.

Roanoke Valley and surrounding area residents who are pregnant or caring for children under the age of 6 may qualify for home visiting services. Home visiting services may be helpful in the following situations:

  • A high risk pregnancy
  • A child born prematurely or a child with special health or learning needs
  • Several children both close in age
  • Live in a group home for teens
  • Care for young children as their grandparent or guardian
  • Concerns about your child’s development
  • History of substance abuse or domestic violence
  • Other situations that make parents a challenge
