State Home Visiting: Enhancing Maternal and Child Health, Wellbeing and School Readiness

Home visiting is a prevention strategy that supports pregnant women and new parents, promotes infant and child health, fosters educational development and school readiness, and helps prevent child abuse and neglect. Legislators can play an important role in establishing effective home visiting policy in their states through legislation and coordination with executive branch agencies. Policy makers can ensure the state is investing in evidence-based home visiting models with accountability and quality improvement measures. This webinar highlights the benefits of home visiting, discuss funding options and provide examples of state initiatives and programs.
