The Home Visiting Primer serves as an introduction to early childhood home visiting, a proven service delivery strategy that helps children and families thrive.

Home visiting has existed in some form for more than 100 years. The primer provides a “home visiting 101” for readers new to the field by presenting—

  • Background information that defines home visiting and outlines its history
  • Highlights from the evidence base for home visiting, including demonstrated impact on critical needs
  • An overview of the funding sources for home visiting services

The NHVRC created the primer to accompany its annual yearbook, which provides an in-depth look at home visiting at the state and national levels.
