Over the last decade, families in poverty have elected to enroll in home visiting programs to strengthen their children’s likelihood of success. Evidence shows that investing in children and families has the potential to meet both social and fiscal goals, such as protecting children from the risk of trauma and maltreatment and ultimately reducing burden on taxpayers by decreasing demands for government interventions (e.g., social services, criminal justice). This briefing will focus on the scientific evidence for home visiting programs generally, and those funded through HRSA’s Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program more specifically. Speakers will also examine the cost-effectiveness of home-visiting programs and the future directions of research in this area, enhanced by innovation and rigorous, empirical evaluation.
