New Parent Support Program

The New Parent Support Program (NPSP) promotes healthy Families through a variety of services including home visits, support groups, and parenting classes. We help Soldiers and Families learn to cope with stress, isolation, post-deployment reunions, and the everyday demands of parenthood. Army Families who are expecting a child or who have children up to age three can participate in all of our services confidentially and free of charge.

Home Visit

Scheduled at your convenience, home visits bring you education and reassurance right to your own home on many topics, including breastfeeding, sleeping, nutrition, potty training, age-appropriate discipline, developmental screenings, sibling rivalry, stress management, deployment issues, and time management. NPSP-Home Visitors are supportive and caring licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs) or registered nurses (RNs). They have extensive experience working with young children and are sensitive to your unique challenges as a military Family.

Safe Sleep

The topic of sleep is important to every parent. Parents want to make sure their little one is getting the rest he or she needs. In addition, they hope that before long they will be able to get some sleep of their own! Check out our information on safe sleep.

 

Thrive

Research shows that a strong bond with a caring adult is one of the most powerful influences on the growth of a child! Attend a Thrive Online program and learn parenting skills that can strengthen your connection with your child and empower you with more skills to help him or her grow healthy and happy!

Purple Cry

You've checked everything. You've tried everything. Sometimes, some babies just need to cry. No matter how you try to soothe your baby. No matter if you spend all day with him/her or if you have periods apart while you work or run errands. This is a phase or period of development that begins around 4 weeks of age and often peaks around 3 to 4 months and then begins to lessen. The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome refers to this time as the Period of PURPLE Crying. Click below to read more on how to take care of yourself and your baby during this challenging time. Check out our information on purple cry
