Healthy Families Rappahannock Area

Healthy Families Rappahannock Area’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect through the promotion of positive parenting. Anyone who’s ever had a baby knows that they do not come with a how-to guide. Parent that is dealing with life stressors such as a broken family, inadequate income, domestic violence, or a poor childhood themselves are not able to focus on bonding with their baby.
We believe that Healthy Families is a living breathing how-to-guide that offers weekly home visits to our most vulnerable families in our community by IDENTIFYING their strengths, PARTNERING with them for success in parenting, and EMPOWERING them to raise healthy children. We are here to help and We are FREE!

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Program Director

Melodie Jennings

Since 2004, I have been a part of an amazing group of individuals driven to empower families to raise healthy children. Starting as a Family Support Worker (Specialists), I worked directly with the families who participated in Healthy Families Rappahannock Area. I was promoted to Program Supervisor and became responsible for leading my own team of Family Support Specialists. In 2021, I again was promoted to Program Director where now I use my passion for this program to guide a team dedicated to making a difference in the families we support in our community. Being a native of this community has ignited my passion even more. I still believe that it takes a village, and I am proud to say that as the Program Director for Healthy Families Rappahannock Area, I am able to lead my team as they support our village.
