PRESS RELEASES - The Director of the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) is pleased to announce that the department is a recipient of a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Maternal and Child Health Bureau.

Guam's Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program also known as Project Bisita I Familia is a collaborative project designed to plan, implement and sustain an effective evidence-based home-visiting program for at-risk children and their families. Guam's vision is "Our children and families will have healthy minds, bodies and spirits for lifelong success."

The Chamorro phrase Bisita I Familia communicates how Guam has embraced the value that the child is an integral part of the family. Through the strength and support of the Chamorro family, children are nurtured and supported.
