The Children’s Trust Fund of Missouri (CTF), in conjunction with the Missouri Department of Social Services, requests proposals from qualified vendors to develop and provide comprehensive prevention home visiting services by a registered nurse to high risk parents residing in the counties of Franklin, Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Louis, and St. Louis City. Proposed services to other counties may be included; however, services to the five previously listed counties must be provided.
Home visitation services shall assist parents/expectant parents to: (1) develop effective parenting skills to ensure the optimal health and development of their children; (2) prevent repeat teen pregnancies; (3) attain maximum educational achievement; (4) develop the capability to support themselves and their children; (5) have healthy birth outcomes; and (6) ensure the safety and overall well-being of children. Proposals are due in the CTF office no later than Thursday, September 27, 2007, 4:00 p.m. to be considered. The Nurse Home Visitation Application Packet contains detailed information and instructions and may be downloaded. Questions may be directed to Laura Malzner, CTF Program Coordinator at 573-751-5147.
