Home Visiting Works

Nothing is more rewarding than knowing children and families who need help the most can access supports to help them be successful. In this brief video, you can see the amazing work of the six state-funded evidence-based home visiting models that provide home visiting services in Pennsylvania.

Each model has distinct characteristics and meets families’ unique needs in different ways; evidence-based home visiting programs help parents and others raising children with the supports necessary to improve maternal and child health, develop school readiness, promote economic self-sufficiency, reduce abuse and neglect, and address substance use disorders. 

Not only do evidence-based home visiting programs benefit the families and communities they serve, but they are also a smart public investment because they support Pennsylvania’s littlest residents during the most important years of their lives developmentally, from birth to kindergarten.
