State-based Home Visiting: Strengthening Services through State Leadership
December 2, 2008
Facilitated by Kay Johnson
Presentations by Kathy Glazer and Frank Putnam
Home visiting for families with young children is a longstanding strategy offering information, guidance, risk assessment, and parenting support interventions at home. Today, while many programs use home-based service delivery, the typical "home visiting" program is designed to improve pregnancy outcomes, parenting skills, and child health and development, particularly for families at higher social risk.
The National Center for Children in Poverty conducted a 50-state survey and convened a roundtable discussion on home visiting, with a special focus on more vulnerable children and families. This webinar will provide participants with:
- highlights the survey and roundtable findings;
- examples of state leadership to strengthen home visiting; and
- recommended strategies for state ECCS grantees and their partners.
You may watch and listen to the entire call at the WebEx website. The call is 88 minutes.
