The Children’s Trust Fund (CTF) has released an application for funding to provide home visitation services in St. Louis city and surrounding counties. Home visiting for parents and their children, beginning prenatal or at birth, has been shown through extensive national research and experience to be an important and effective strategy to prevent a range of poor childhood health and developmental outcomes, including child abuse and neglect. All services under this application must be conducted by Registered Nurses or qualified paraprofessionals under the supervision of a Registered Nurse. To be considered, applications must be received in the CTF Office no later than noon (CDT) on Friday, September 23, 2011. For questions, please contact CTF Program Coordinator Laura Malzner at (573) 751-6511 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. To download the application, click on one of the formats below. Funding for these services is made possible by the Missouri Department of Social Services.
