Home Visiting Community Planning Tool

Zero to the Three recently released a tool for communities interested in creating home visiting programs.  Home visiting programs offer a variety of family-focused services to expectant parents and families with new babies and young children. They address issues such as maternal and child health, positive parenting practices, safe home environments, and access to services. Various home visiting models exist. This tool offers guidance to communities about what factors to consider when developing or expanding a home visiting model. This tool can be accessed here.

More information on home visiting programs can also be found on the Child Welfare Information Gateway's Home Visiting page.
