Expressing Gratitude for Our Illinois Home Visitors

Fill out a thank you card and let a home visitor know what an impact they made!


Bringing home a newborn is an incredibly exciting and overwhelming moment. Having someone in your corner can really help make a difference. Home visitors partner with families to support healthy parent-child relationships, promote child development, and encourage family health and well-being, laying a strong foundation for a child’s learning and future success in life and offering key support to parents. Home visitors do incredible work! 

To celebrate the field for the crucial support they provide, we’re running an appreciation campaign for our Illinois home visitors! If you’d like to send a home visitor a note to let them know what they mean to you and how they impacted your family, fill out the form below! You can fill out the form as many times as you'd like to send messages to multiple home visitors, and you can also fill out a more general note of thanks if you’d like to thank the field overall and don’t have a specific home visitor in mind. 

The form will close in early September and thank you cards will be virtually delivered to recipients shortly after the campaign has wrapped.

By filling out the form below, you authorize Raising Illinois/Start Early to utilize your message in future home visiting promotion on our website, social media, and printed materials. In the event that your message is utilized, all identifying information will be removed.

Strengthened Home Visiting System

The prenatal period and the first moments and years of life are critical for brain development and laying the foundation for future health and success. Babies do not come with instruction manuals, but home visiting may be the next best thing. Check out our Home Visiting Fact Sheet to learn more about home visiting in Illinois and what we're doing to move the needle.
