WHCA, Washington Hancock Community Agency

Nurse Home Visiting and Bridging Program


Operated in partnership with the Community Caring Collaborative, WHCA's Nurse Home Visiting and Bridging is a high-intensity home visiting program for high-risk prenatal clients and high-risk/medically complicated infants. Our nurses work closely with the families and take a whole family approach as the wellness of the children is also dependent on the wellness of the care providers.

While the infant is in the hospital, we work with the hospital staff to ensure needs are met and educational criteria are met for discharge. We work closely with the hospital staff and bridge healthcare needs to home to ensure appropriate follow-up care goals are met. Once the infant is discharged home we continue to meet with the family and frequently assess growth and development, reaching out to medical providers to keep them informed of changes.
