El Paso County Public Health will be closed at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 23, 2014 for the holidays.  We will reopen Friday, December 26, 2014.

Our child health programs are intended to give the children of El Paso County and their families the tools to help them succeed. Our Nurse Family Partnership provides home nursing care for low-income, first-time parents to aid them for the first two years of their child's life. Health Care for Special Needs Children gives special assistance for the first 21 years of those born with special health needs while our Strong & Healthy Families program provides nurse home visits and training in caring for children, as well as improving the employment potential and self-sufficiency of the family to create a stable, successful home life. Maternal Child Health is working to prevent Early Childhood Obesity.
