Home visiting programs are one part of a comprehensive, high-quality early childhood system that promotes maternal, infant, and early childhood health, safety, and development.  Home visiting encourages strong parent-child relationships.  Home visiting offers a variety of family-focused services to expectant parents and families with new babies and young children.
Evidence-based home visiting provided by trained visitors or parent coaches results in:
  • Improved maternal and prenatal health,
  • Improved infant health, and child health and development;
  • Increased school readiness;
  • Reductions in the incidence of child maltreatment;
  • Improved family socio-economic status;
  • Greater coordination of referrals to community resources and supports; and
  • Reductions in crime and domestic violence.

N-MIECHV is contributing to the development of evidence-based home visiting programs in Nebraska communities.  At the state level, a leadership team carries out planning, data, training, program- and systems-level functions to improve the quality and measure the effectiveness of home visiting in Nebraska. At-risk communities were identified through the PDF Statewide Needs Assessment conducted in 2010.
