Information on Home Visiting Health Workers

HVCHW’s (previously known as the Health Ambassadors) assist families in understanding the benefits of having a Home Visitor and finding resources to help you raise a healthy family for moms, dads, families thinking about having a baby, or currently pregnant. 

Our program promotes good health before pregnancy and provides key maternal health messages including the benefits of breast feeding and the importance of safe sleep.

HVCHW’s work in targeted high-risk zip codes to connect pregnant women and young families to health care, social services, home visiting, and educational programs. We work with community partners including  Saint Francis HealthcareWestside Family Healthcare and the Wilmington Hospital Health Center.

The Home Visiting Community Health Workers were founded by ChristianaCare’s Community Health and the Wilmington Consortium, with funding from  Delaware Division of Public Health.
