HFG Network

The purpose of the Healthy Families Georgia Network is to link HFG affiliates around the state and provide support and training to implement best practice standards for quality home visitation services

Since 1997, the Healthy Families Georgia Network has ensured that all HFG Programs meet the national accreditation standards for quality home visitation services.

These standards are based on Healthy Families 12 Critical Elements for quality home visitation services.  The Critical Elements guide service delivery, staff selection and training, supervision and administrative elements of all accredited HF Programs in the country. All Healthy Families sites in Georgia are accredited through HFA.
