Healthy Families of Arkansas

Supporting Pregnant and Parenting Mothers

Excel's vision for healthy youth reaches far outside the classroom!  The Healthy Families of Arkansas program (HFAR) is in place to empower pregnant and parenting women to achieve their full potential. Below are services provided:

  • Help mothers/family find a medical home, assistance completing Medical applications, WIC and other needed services
  • Transportation assistance to prenatal and well baby check ups as well as required immunizations
  • Education on child development and positive parenting practices
  • Aid and support in continuing/completing educational aspirations (High School, College, Trade School, etc.)
  • Crisis intervention and help transitioning into independent living
  • Support in obtaining childcare, assistance in childcare enrollment and accessing other resources as needed

Healthy Families have group meetings once a month with all the families.  Moms receive FREE diapers/wipes for attending meetings and gas cards if they find their own transportation to the meeting

A Mommy Store is also available for moms who keep their visits and come to group meetings -  moms will receive "mommy bucks" to shop in our store for things such as:

Diapers, wipes, books, safety kits, baby clothes etc
