Welcome Baby: About Us
Welcome Baby is a free home visitation program that promotes healthy, happy, and supportive new beginnings for parents, babies, and their family members.
The program is available to any family in Weber, Box Elder, Summit, Davis, and Salt Lake counties with a baby aged zero to three years old. Don’t live in one of these service areas? Don’t let that stop you from getting involved in our work, whether that be as a volunteer or to enroll as a participant in the program.
Our program is working to expand statewide and we want everyone who needs our services to have access to them! Please reach out to us and we will work to bring our program to you.
