Welcome Baby is a home visitation program sponsored by United Way of Northern Utah. We train volunteers to visit new parents in our community. During their first visit, the volunteer shares a free gift donated by our community, a “Keeping Your Baby Healthy” guide, and additional community information. The volunteer continues to visit the family monthly, building a relationship with the family and providing information, support, and other resources.
A commitment of at least six months is asked of our volunteers. We also ask that volunteers attend at least one in-service training per quarter year. In-service is a great way for volunteers to enhance their home-visitation experience and the information they can bring to families.
We look for volunteers that have experience working with children and families, especially experienced mothers, grandmothers, and couples. We also recruit students with some education in related field.
Become a Welcome Baby volunteer home visitor and enjoy the fulfillment of strengthening families in your community. Have fun interacting with parents and their new babies, bringing new information and activities while sharing insights from your personal experience. You can make a difference in the lives of families in Northern Utah!
