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 for yourself the amazing work of the six state-funded evidence-based home visiting models that provide home visiting services in Pennsylvania, with at least one model operating in each of the commonwealth’s 67 counties.

Each model has distinct characteristics and meets families’ unique needs in different ways; evidence-based  home visiting programs can lead to improved family health, help establish early literacy habits, support families in working toward economic security, and introduce positive parenting practices that can reduce child abuse and neglect.

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.
