MFSS accredited as quality provider

Prevent Child Abuse America has announced that the Healthy Families America affiliate Maui Family Support Services Inc. on Lanai has been accredited as a provider of high-quality home visiting services to families who want to improve their child’s health, nutrition and developmental outcomes.

HFA is a signature program of PCA America that has been providing home visiting services for more than 20 years.

The accreditation process is based upon a stringent set of 12 critical elements grounded in more than 30 years of research, according to an announcement. The process involves an in-depth examination of the site’s operation, as well as, the quality of the visits made by HFA home visitors.

The HFA site on Lanai is located at 730 Lanai Ave., No. 109, Lanai City. MFSS HFA has been serving families on Lanai since January 2015. Since then, MFSS has served 30 families. Per program eligibility requirements, most families enroll prenatally and can continue to participate in the program until children turn 3 years old.
