National Home Visiting Coalition Announces Website Launch

The National Home Visiting Coalition, a group consisting of nearly 50 advocacy and home visiting programs, announced the launch of its new website last week. The Coalition is urging Congress to reauthorize and expand the federal Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program, which is set to expire in September.

The website provides answers to frequently asked questions, reports, and fact sheets regarding home visiting, as well as presents opportunities for constituents to contact their federal delegation to encourage their continued support for evidence-based home visiting programs.

Home visiting programs provide essential one-on-one support to families from pregnancy through early childhood, focusing on improving the physical and mental health of families, ensuring access to quality health care and resources, and partnering with parents to support children’s education. Home visitors can be nurses, social workers or other trained educators, who work with families directly in their homes. Last Wednesday, a nurse-home visitor and parent from Nurse-Family Partnership in Lancaster testified about their experiences with the program at the U.S. House Ways & Means Committee hearing on the reauthorization of MIECHV. You can read their testimonies here.

Currently, MIECHV is the largest home visiting funding source in Pennsylvania, funding four unique, evidence-based models – Early Head Start; Healthy Families America; Nurse-Family Partnership; and Parents as Teachers. Governor Wolf included a home visiting initiative is his proposed 2017-2018 budget for evidence-based home visiting programs for a second year in a row. His proposal will substantially build upon the state’s current home visiting funding and could serve 1,700 more families. In order to ensure these essential services are provided to Pennsylvania’s most at-risk families, PPC supports both the reauthorization of the MIECHV program and Governor Wolf’s budget proposal.

To learn more about evidence-based home visiting programs and take action to ensure the reauthorization of the MIECHV program, visit the National Coalition on Home Visiting’s new website here.

Dorothy Putnam's Gravatar There are schools and educational institutions that even do not care to provide a proper education to the students in their institutions. These educational platform are mostly interested in making more and more money rather that puting their main focus on the spread of education. However, still there are very few such platforms where students can find proper guidance and assistance regarding their every problem. Most of these are online educational portals such as: http://www.accreditedlifeexperiencedegree.org/non-...
