Family Spirit Home Visiting Program

Family Spirit is a unique, evidence-based home-visiting model with a reputation for success: dependability with flexibility.

Family Spirit addresses intergenerational behavioral health problems, applies local cultural assets, and overcomes deficits in the professional healthcare workforce in low-resource communities.

It is used in over 100 tribal communities across 16 states, and it is also used in several other low-income urban environments in Chicago and St. Louis.
