All parents face challenges when caring for their young children. And when they struggle with additional burdens, such as poverty, lack of social support, substance use, or teenage parenthood, they face even more difficulties. Home visiting programs can help parents address these challenges by matching families with trained professionals who can support parents' development of quality parenting skills.
Many home visiting programs have been shown to be effective at supporting parents and young children, but local communities that decide to implement home visiting may encounter challenges in choosing among different programs, adapting program to the community's specific needs, and implementing the programs.
This manual aims to support home visiting program implementation. It describes a ten-step process, called Getting To Outcomes® for Home Visiting, that helps empower communities to better plan, implement, and evaluate home visiting programs, with the goal of achieving the best possible outcomes. The model presented in this manual is meant to provide specific guidance, yet be flexible enough to facilitate any home visiting program.
