The 2021 Yearbook: Home Visiting in Your State and Nationwide

The National Home Visiting Resource Center (NHVRC) has released its 2021 Home Visiting Yearbook, a nationwide and state-by-state look at early childhood home visiting. The publication presents 2020 data from evidence-based and emerging home visiting models and from state agencies. It includes:

  • 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 (MIECHV) Program

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.

For the first time, the 2021 Yearbook includes data on virtual home visits (which the study authors say is likely an undercount) to reflect the field’s quick transition to virtual service delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic. It also includes maternal and child health indicator data disaggregated by race and ethnicity to convey families’ wide range of experiences accessing community supports and services. This summary lists key takeaways.
