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. 

Each installation has developed unique New Parent Support Program services that include:

  • Home visits: Provide opportunities to learn about infant care, breastfeeding, home safety, and infant and child development. Home visits are provides by licensed nurses and social workers especially trained to understand the special needs of military Families.
  • Expectant Parent Services: Referral services to local childbirth preparation classes, prenatal information, childbirth education and breastfeeding education. Videos and books are also available to check-out.
