CalWORKs Families Rising (FaR)

Families Rising is the CalWORKs Home Visiting Program that provides services to households that have a member who is pregnant or children under the age of two.

Home visits can take place in your home, in a location in your community, or another location you choose. They can even take place virtually.  Visits will cover parent-child interactions, child development, and overall family well-being.

FaR services include:   

  • Pregnancy or post-partum support 
  • Early child care and education to prepare your child for school
  • Child health screenings to ensure children meet their developmental milestones
  • Referrals for services including housing, domestic violence, and substance abuse
  • Mental health support for parents experiencing stress
  • Voluntary parent support groups with other program participants
