An Inspiring Story from Easter Seals Midwest Home Visitation Program that shows the important role that home visitors play in empowering and supporting families, and how home visitors and medical providers can work together to strengthen outcomes for children.
"One of the mothers that engaged in the Moving Beyond Depression (MBD) program wanted to share the mirror she received upon completion of the program with the other members in her Women's Group.
The home visitor stated that it was a powerful moment for the entire group because many of the other women were also involved with the MBD program at different stages. This home visitor later went on to say that MBD really gave the mother the boost in parenting that she needed. She stated that initially she would have minimal to no communication with her son, and now she was talking and interacting with her son more than she ever had in the past. The home visitor stated that the support that MBD provides families and home visitors is invaluable."
