About Us

The Bloom Network is a collaborative effort to provide quality care to families through home visitation, perinatal behavioral health, and safe sleep. We re-imagine investments with comprehensive, community-based support to our region’s Black moms, babies, and families.

What is Home Visiting?

Home visiting is a free, voluntary service where a home visiting provider comes to a family’s home to help set and reach goals through resources, community and support. Services may vary by model, but each one generally helps parents of young children to:

  • Understand child development and key milestones
  • Build and maintain positive parent-child relationships
  • Find community resources and supports
  • Improve child and family well-being

What is Missouri’s Home Visiting Referral System?

The Missouri Home Visiting Referral System is a web-based platform that makes it easy to refer a family to home visiting services anywhere in the state through one of five regional coordinated referral & intake system (CRIS) networks. Each regional CRIS network is managed by a state-funded home visiting collective impact site and includes a variety of home visiting programs and models in its specific service area.
