The New Parent Support Program at U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria offers a dynamic program, and enrollment is open to any family that has children 4 years old or younger. The program is staffed by two licensed clinical social workers and a registered nurse who plan and lead programs as well as make regular home visits to the program's participants.
The program is voluntary, and home visits are available to families for any needs related to pregnancy, childbirth, delivery, breastfeeding, newborn care, assessment for post-partum maternal depression and help with home organization. Home visits are also available for help with the issues of toddlerhood: toilet training, discipline and other issues typical to that age.
Its main mission, as part of the Family Advocacy Program, is to reduce the potential for child and/or spouse abuse, isolation, maternal depression and stress caused by being in a foreign country with no family or friends nearby.
