State-based home visiting: Strengthening programs through state leadership
Johnson, Kay, February, 2009
New York: Columbia University, National Center for Children in Poverty.

This report is designed to help inform the field about two central questions related to home visiting: 1) How are states investing in home visiting in ways that promote improved outcomes for young children? 2) How, in this context, do they meet the needs of those facing the greatest social and developmental risks? Our purpose was to assess the direction of state policies and programs, not to evaluate program effectiveness. The report first discusses the nature of home visiting programs, and then highlights the results of a survey on how state-based home visiting programs are structured and financed and respond to diverse family needs. The third section describes how states are strengthening home visiting programs. It details three state strategies. The fourth section illuminates major points that surfaced as a result of an NCCP roundtable on the role of home visiting in serving more vulnerable, higher risk families. The report ends with conclusions and recommendations for national and state-level leadership. (author abstract)
