For the past year, the Home Visiting Investment Task Force at the Early Childhood Leadership Commission (ECLC) has been developing a strategy to expand, improve, and consistently fund a continuum of home visiting services across the state. The recommendations of the task force are now finalized in the following report: Home Visiting Investment Plan.
Home visiting programs are known to have a positive impact on children and families, including reducing child maltreatment, improving child and maternal health, promoting positive parenting practices, reducing sudden unexpected infant death, and increasing children’s school readiness. The Child Fatality Prevention System has consistently recommended expanded home visiting services that meet the cultural and linguistic needs of families as a strategy to prevent child deaths.
The task force will continue to meet to help make these recommendations a reality. Read the report here: Home Visiting Investment Plan.
