Valuing Children. Strengthening Families. Engaging Communities.

Our Mission

 To provide a community system of support to strengthen families, increase health and safety, and enhance the development of children in Charles City and New Kent Counties.

 About Us

 Through grants from the Greater Richmond United Way, Healthy Families Virginia, and the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Program, Quin Rivers' fully accredited Charles City/New Kent Healthy Families Program provides intensive home visiting services to families, both pre- and post-natal, using the National Healthy Families model.

Services include family assessment, education and information on infant and child growth and development, home visiting, health services, family support, and referrals to community resources.

Families residing in New Kent and Charles City Counties are eligible for these services. Referrals come from community partners, private physicians and public health departments, as well as self-referrals and referrals from friends and family.
