Assessment and mapping of community connections in home visiting: Final report


Home visiting programs provide information and support to parents of young children to address their individual needs. The families served by home visiting programs often have many needs, and home visitors cannot address all of them. Therefore, referrals to outside community services are vital for the success of the families that home visiting programs serve. Recognizing the importance of these referrals, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), in partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), both of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), contracted with Child Trends and Trilogy Interactive to design a prototype for a tool to enhance home visiting stakeholders’ understanding of community connections in the home visiting context. Stakeholders of interest include federal staff, state administrators, tribal and non-tribal local implementing agencies, state-level early childhood coordinators, technical assistance providers, home visiting model and tool developers, and researchers. Community connections refer to relationships between home visiting programs and other community services providers, such as those offering mental health services, child care, and more. This report provides a summary of the work the project team completed to understand the needs of relevant stakeholders and to propose a tool that would meet their needs. (author abstract)
