Healthy Families America (HFA) is the signature program of Prevent Child Abuse America (PCA America). The HFA National Office, located in Chicago, Illinois, provides support, technical assistance, training, affiliation, state/multisite system development, and accreditation services to HFA sites.
Nine states and one large metropolitan area have affiliated as an HFA state/multisite system. These include Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Oregon, San Diego, and Virginia. State/multisite systems have a central administration or other entity providing an infrastructure of support for HFA sites in a state or geographical region. The designated central administrative entity provides HFA training for staff at all sites, facilitates implementation of the model, assists established sites in preparing for HFA accreditation, increases public awareness and advocacy, identifies potential funding streams, and evaluates services and outcomes. The HFA National Office provides support to each state/multisite system through guidance on best standards for the central administration entity. In addition, the HFA National Office offers a comprehensive accreditation process that includes the central administration and the sites it supports.
