By combining traditional teachings and values with today’s knowledge of health and development, Healthy Start & Family Spirit are here to support the building of strong families and strong nations. Services are available to families from pregnancy until your child’s 5th birthday.

Healthy Start & Family Spirit is open to all families in Southeastern Michigan, with a focus on the Native American and other indigenous communities. There are no income or insurance requirements. Home-based support is available within 45 miles of Detroit.

También ofrecemos el programa en español, para familias de Latinoamérica y el caribe.
