Nurse Support Program: Home Visiting

Adams and Arapahoe County Nurse Support Programs

The Nurse Support Programs at Tri-County Health Department provide nursing services, support, and care coordination to families and adults in Adams and Arapahoe Counties.

Partners at Adams and Arapahoe County Human Services offices identify families and individuals that could benefit from Nurse Support Program services. Nurse Support Program nurses provide families and individuals with nursing assessments, care coordination and education based on needs identified by the client and caseworker/nurse team.

The mission of the Nurse Support Program is to reduce the risks and mitigate the effects of traumatic events, while encouraging healthy social, physical, and emotional development. We provide a holistic assessment of individuals and families, and advocate for equity in our communities by connecting our clients to the support systems and resources they need to achieve optimal health.

Families must be referred directly from Adams County or Arapahoe County Department of Human Services.
