The Home Visiting Applied Research Collaborative (HARC) is a collaborative of researchers and stakeholders dedicated to supporting improved outcomes for children and families through home visiting research.
It aims to identify and advance the use of innovative research methods, to accelerate the integration of results into practice, and to support the development of emerging researchers.
HARC focuses on precision home visiting, which breaks down services to understand how their components achieve specific outcomes for specific populations. JBA is represented on the HARC steering committee and works with other home visiting leaders to refine the research agenda and oversee its progress.
