Description: This brief summarizes the communities' progress in developing home-based early learning (HBEL) services based on an implementation study conducted by Mathematica Policy Research during the first year of service delivery (see page 2). It provides an overview of the need for HBEL services in East Yakima and White Center, how the communities selected programs to implement, and how they prepared for service delivery. It then describes the implementation of two established home visiting models and the piloting of a newly developed model. The brief concludes by highlighting key lessons learned and by describing the next steps for continuing to develop the HBEL service delivery system. (author abstract)
