The New Parent Support Program (NPSP) is a professional team of social workers, counselors, and registered nurses who provide education and support to Marine families who are expecting or raising children aged 0 -5 years old. The NPSP also hosts baby boot camp and group parenting classes, playgroups, and home visits for Marines and their families.
The New Parent Support Program (NPSP) is a voluntary strength-based parent education program which is delivered through education and support, secondary prevention, intensive home visitation services, parent support groups, and the ability to link parents to appropriate referrals and resources. Program eligibility is offered to all Marines, other military service members, family members who are expectant parents and parents of children from birth to five years of age. The NPSP Home Visitors (HV) are Registered Nurses, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists who specialize in newborn care, infant/child development, and parent education.
Through a variety of programs such as home visits, support groups, and parenting classes, the NPSP can help families adjust to having a new baby in the home, cope with stress related to deployment/post-deployment issues, change in family dynamics and/or improve parenting skills. Even if you have been raising your family for a few years, challenges may arise as your child grows and develops. The NPSP offers you the opportunity to express your concerns, ask questions about your baby, young children, enhance parent child relationships and parenting techniques, build skills, set goals, gain knowledge and access referrals.
