2017 Home Visiting Yearbook

This new report from the National Home Visiting Resource Center brings together comprehensive data on the current state of childhood home visiting across the nation. It shows how these home visiting programs, designed to help children and their families thrive, have been effectively implemented on the federal, state and county levels. While this is great news, the report also outlines how many more children and families in need could benefit from the proper utilization of these available programs.

This report argues against this misconception and lays out a framework for the proper education and training of this vulnerable workforce.
