What Healthy Start Has to Offer

During the first two-day RFHF training, children’s library staff and Healthy Start family support workers were asked: “What early literacy activities are you already doing?”  Read the notes from this activity to learn what Healthy Start family support workers may have to offer in a partnership.
 
Here are some general things Healthy Start family support workers may have to offer libraries, contact your local Healthy Start to find out more:
  • Access to the children and parents that don’t typically go to the library.
  • Access to the children and parents who can’t afford to purchase a lot of books, attend parenting classes, or enroll their children in high quality programs.
  • Expertise on how to engage at-risk families.
  • Expertise on what resources at-risk families need and want.
