In-home support for families with new babies!

Who Should Request a Volunteer?


Brighter Beginnings services are free of charge to all families. The goal is to ensure that every baby enjoys a “bright beginning” and parents feel supported.

We serve the communities of Hastings, Prescott, WI, Cottage Grove, Newport, and St. Paul Park.

What we do!

The concept behind the Brighter Beginnings home visiting program is simple and powerful: Any family with a new baby can use a helping hand.

Brighter Beginnings is a free home-visitor program that relies on trained volunteers to offer support to every family with a new baby.

Brighter Beginnings volunteers – like a good friend or neighbor – offer the kind of flexible support that can make a family’s first months with a new baby healthier and less stressful.
