Kentucky’s Health Access Nurturing Development Services, HANDS, supports families as they build healthy, safe environments for the optimal growth and development of children.

HANDS is a home visiting program for pregnant moms to be and new parents that will support all areas of a baby’s development. HANDS will support you through your pregnancy and the first years of a baby’s life to help answer all the questions that you are currently having and will have in the future. ENROLLMENT MUST BE DURING PREGNANCY OR SOON AFTER A BABY IS BORN so, if you are pregnant or your baby is less than three months old, call your local health department for the HANDS program. At the HANDS program, we feel that every parent needs a second pair of hands.
