Family Connects Oregon

Oregon's New Universally Offered Nurse Home Visiting Program

The birth of a child is a big change for any family. It impacts a family’s social, emotional, financial and physical environment. Most families welcome support as they move through this transition.

Family Connects Oregon builds on Oregon’s current home visiting programs and will offer home visiting to all families with newborns. It is a voluntary, opt-in program. No families are required to participate.


Rulemaking Announcement

Due to the COVID-19 response, the Oregon Health Authority, Public Health Division is pausing all rulemaking that is not directly related to COVID-19 until further notice.  We will not be holding a hearing as originally scheduled on April 28, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. or taking written comments for the above referenced rulemaking at this time.  When regular rulemaking resumes, we will re-file notice of proposed rulemaking with the Secretary of State and notify interested parties of the re-scheduled public hearing and opportunity to submit written comments.

If you have questions, please contact Anna Stiefvater by email at or by phone at 503-730-0235. Thank you for your continued support.
