The Child and Family Health Division is one of the divisions within York Region Public Health, a branch of York Region Community and Health Services. We provide valuable programs and services to families in York Region on a number of important health topics. These topics include dental health, pregnancy, breastfeeding, parenting, child growth and development, newborn care and perinatal mood disorder. We supply this information through classes, workshops, clinics, home visits and support groups.
The Healthy Babies Healthy Children Program (HBHC) is a confidential and voluntary home visiting program for families who are pregnant or have children up to age six. This program is your one-stop shop for information on a variety of topics. A Public Health Nurse can link you to a broad range of programs and services.
