The National Home Visiting Resource Center (NHVRC) has released its 2019 Home Visiting Yearbook, the most comprehensive picture yet of early childhood home visiting across America. The publication presents 2018 data from evidence-based and emerging home visiting models and from state agencies to highlight:
- Where programs operate, the families they serve, and the families who could benefit but are not being reached
- State, tribal, and model profiles
- Services delivered by state awardees of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV)
Welcome Baby, Healthy Families America, Parents as Teachers — the home visiting programs in Los Angeles County’s Family Strengthening Network — are among the models profiled in this year’s publication.
The NHVRC has also released smaller publications, including its Yearbook Summary, Home Visiting Primer, and Home Visiting at a Glance. To get the latest on key findings and the Yearbook’s new online format, join NHVRC’s webinar on November 12 at 9:00 a.m. PT. Register here.
