HANDS is a collaborative effort of the Cabinet for Health Services, the Governor's KIDS NOW Initiative and other local community agencies. The purpose is to provide information, referral and support for Moms and Dads expecting their first child. The focus is on recognizing your baby's needs, what to expect as your baby grows, making your home safe and other important topics that could help your baby have a healthy, safe beginning. HANDS is a voluntary, free service to first time parents. Hispanic services are also available.
