Tri-Cap accredited for quality home visits

From Local Sources

JASPER — Prevent Child Abuse America announced Friday that Tri-Cap, a Healthy Families America affiliate, has been accredited as a provider of high quality home visiting services to families who want to improve their child’s health, nutrition and developmental outcomes.

HFA is a signature program of PCA America that has been providing home visiting services for more than 20 years. Expectant and new parents have common questions about their child’s development and HFA connects with families through community partners like hospitals and pediatricians to find the answers to their questions, meeting within the familiarity and convenience of the family’s own home. HFA is an accessible, voluntary and well-received service.

The accreditation process is based upon a stringent set of 12 critical elements grounded in more than 30 years of research. The process involves an in-depth examination of the site’s operation, as well as, the quality of the visits made by HFA home visitors.

The HFA site in Jasper is located at Tri-Cap’s office at 607 Third Avenue. The site services families residing throughout Dubois, Spencer, and Warrick counties.
