WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT HOME VISITING
I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have Alyssa to listen to me when no one else would. Or bounce ideas off of. Or even email her in the middle of the night when things are bothering me. I am so thankful I have someone like her in my life. She has helped me through so much. I have a happy healthy little boy that keeps me motivated. I would really suggest this program to anyone like myself or even to a woman that has a happy home life because having a child is never easy. And it’s always nice to have someone to talk to reassure you that you are doing a great job.A new mom participating in the PAT+ home visiting program
