Decades of research has shown the importance of children’s early experiences in laying the foundation for their growing brains. Home visiting is a program where skilled professionals like nurses and social workers provide support directly to families in their own homes. Home visitors can answer questions about a child’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development, help strengthen parenting skills, and connect families to community resources and services.
