EBHV Program Information Flyer
During the first years of a child’s life, many parents face obstacles such as poverty, domestic violence and social isolation. They might feel confused, alone, stressed or overwhelmed by the presence of a newborn and may struggle to meet the needs of their children.
Evidence Based Home Visiting (EBHV) programs can be an effective early-intervention strategy to improve the health and well-being of children and parents. Research demonstrates that young children of families enrolled in EBHV programs show improvements in health and development outcomes and increased school readiness.
- Improve family functioning and parenting skills
- Link families with appropriate social service agencies
