The team approach

The Early Intervention Parenting Partnerships (EIPP) is a home visiting program embedded in the larger Early Intervention statewide system of care. The EIPP program offers a unique opportunity to engage with and support families during pregnancy, continuing through the child’s first birthday.

The EIPP team includes a maternal and child health nurse, a mental health clinician and a community health worker. The team approach works with the family to assess their needs and connect the family to additional resources when appropriate. Providing early support is the primary focus of the team.

EIPP values the team approach​, respect, strength-based, community, empathy and individualized, relationship-based support. 

Through their combined knowledge and experience, families engaging EIPP services feel confident they are building a strong foundation for their family.


Most families, either expecting a child or with an infant 3 months or younger, residing in a EIPP catchment area are eligible for EIPP services.
