About Pernet Family Health Services
Pernet Family Health Service in Worcester, Massachusetts is a Department of Public Health-certified home health agency. We provide a continuum of care to support and strengthen families. This is done through giving hands-on, in-home care for the most complex of maternal and child cases in the Worcester area, and Early Intervention Services for children 0-3 years of age with, or at-risk for, developmental delays. In partnership with the Department of Children and Families, the Parent Aide Program works on family reunification and parent training. The Fathers Program supports fathers in the community and those at the Worcester County Jail and House of Correction giving them skills needed to connect with their children. Our Emergency Assistance Program operates a food pantry where families are able to access food, diapers, and hygiene products. The Youth Program offers recreation, academic support, and youth events to neighborhood youth. We also collaborate with many governmental, nonprofit, and spiritual organizations to improve the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual health of 11,500 people a year, many of them infants and children.
