Voluntary Early Childhood Home Visiting
Supporting new and expectant parents during the pivotal time from pregnancy to age three.
California’s youngest children and their families face many challenges from the start. Extensively validated by research, home visiting programs match parents with trained professionals who foster the developing parent-child relationship and connect families with information and resources at the time they need it the most. Home visiting programs can return as much as $5.70 for each dollar invested, and are proven to increase family self-sufficiency, positive parenting practices, and maternal and child health.
