The purpose of the project is to build a system to support implementation of evidence-based home visiting programs. Based on a statewide needs assessment, counties were prioritized for being at risk with poor health and developmental outcomes for women and their children. To address this, evidence-based home visiting programs like Nurse-Family Partnership, Healthy Families America, and Parents as Teachers were implemented. These programs work directly with families to improve the health and developmental outcomes of children, to ensure children live in safe and nurturing environment, and to strengthen parent-child relationships. To assist the programs, a database was developed to support case management, data collection, and evaluation.

Missouri's Home Visiting program project's purpose is to provide home visiting services to new and expectant mothers/families by using three evidence-based models (NFP, EHS and PAT) that includes education on parenting skills and early childhood health development, with an ultimate goal of improving the overall well being of the child in a family friendly environment. Long term benefits of home visiting services to both the family and society have been well established, particularly for at-risk families. There is also a cost benefit to society as these home visiting services promote the life course development of children into successful members of society.

Maine’s MIECHV Project advances years of work towards an evidence-based, data-driven and family-centered home visiting system. The project will increase direct service capacity and engagement strategies to serve Maine’s most vulnerable families. Maine Families has identified a need for more detailed articulation of the Standards of Practice. In the coming year, we plan to develop and integrate a procedural manual that expands on our Standards with our Data Users Guide. Local CQI efforts are also underway to help home visitors make their data more meaningful and identify strategies to inform change. MOU's and collaboration efforts at the State level are also part of the FY15 goals and objectives.

This program seeks to implement an evidence-based home visitng model, Healthy Families America, with fidelity in Scotts Bluff, Box Butte, and Morrill counties in the rual Panhandle area of Nebraska. Scotts Bluff County was identified as having the greatest level of unmet need in comparison with the other 16 at-risk counties. Morrill and Box Butte, being contigous and frontier counties, were included for implementation to maximize the infrastructure being built in this relatively remote and very rural part of the state. Concurrently, infrastructure building includes the development of a benchmark plan and a data system, and engagement with other at-risk counties to plan for future expansion.

Indiana's MIECHV Program increases capacity of home visiting within high-risk communities through evidence based programs Healthy Families Indiana and Nurse-Family Partnership. Home visiting clients are often characterized by a combination of risk factors including: single parenting, mental illness, substance abuse, low educational attainment, history of interpersonal violence, and limited access to health care. Home visiting services will address high-risk, low income families in need of services through education, intervention, and referrals to wrap around support services. A third-party evaluator will provide an objective view of Indiana's MIECHV outcomes.

This project in conjuction with the Development grant will develop a system of home visiting programs through the Hawaii Home Visiting Network. This Network will support the hospital based Early Identification program in all civilian birthing hospitals which will screen and assess all new mothers for risk indicators for child abuse and neglect. The project will provide the technical assistance and support to ensure these programs can provide home visiting services with quality and fidelity to their model. A challenge has been to provide these programs with the support needed to address the project outcomes and benchmarks.

The purpose of this project is to create a comprehsive and coordinated statewide MCH home visiting infasture in RI. Although RI has many strengths around its current early childhood system of care, it is difficult to determine how families enroll in various services, whether families are recieving multiple services or no services at all, who is coordinating services for famlies, and how the services relate to long term postive outcomes. The capacity of evidence-based home visiting programs, although recently expanded, remains insufficient to serve the number of families in need of such services.The project will support current slots for Nurse Family Partnership (NFP), Healthy Families America (HFA), and Parents as Teachers (PAT).

Nevada Home Visiting supports home visiting services to provide service to highly at-risk families to include expectant mothers and families with children through age five or kindergarten entry. These families are typically young, inexperienced, low education, low income. Home Visiting seeks to affect a change in the family dynamic and outcomes by teaching child development, sharing resources, encouraging bonding, and monitoring the progress of the children and the family. This is accomplished by utilizing the following model programs: Nurse-Family Partnership, Early Head Start Home-Based Option, and HIPPY (Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters).

Nevada Home Visiting supports home visiting services to provide service to highly at-risk families to include expectant mothers and families with children through age five or kindergarten entry. These families are typically young, inexperienced, low education, low income. Home Visiting seeks to affect a change in the family dynamic and outcomes by teaching child development, sharing resources, encouraging bonding, and monitoring the progress of the children and the family. This is accomplished by utilizing the following model programs: Nurse-Family Partnership, Early Head Start Home-Based Option, and HIPPY (Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters).

The purpose of the project is to create a comprehensive and coordinated statewide MCH home visiting infrastructure in RI. Although RI has many strengths around its current early childhood system of care, it is difficult to determine how families enroll in various services, whether families are receiving multiple services or no services at all, who is coordinating services for families, and how the services relate to long term positive outcomes. The project will establish a statewide Home Visting Leadership Council, implement HFA and NFP in four at risk communities, and create Local Implementation Teams and a Home Visiting Network.

Improved birth outcomes and decreasing infant mortality are among the main goals of the Department of Health. Implementation of the NFP Home Visiting model in identified at-risk communites is a strategy to achieve that goal. Reservation areas have particulary high rates of infant mortality, poverty, crime, domestic violence, high school dropouts, substance abuse, unemployment and child maltreatment. NFP was chosen due to evidence-based research documenting improved pregnancy outcomes and child health/development and increased self-sufficiency. The program is being implemented with fidelity to the model while making adjustments for service delivery in the high-risk reservation communities.

Missouri's Home Visiting program project's purpose is to provide comprehensive early childhood home visiting services to pregnant women and families with children under age 5, using three evidence-based models (NFP, EHS and PAT) that includes education on parenting skills and early childhood health development, with an ultimate goal of improving the overall well being of the child in a family friendly environment. Long term benefits of home visiting services to both the family and society have been well established, particularly for at-risk families. There is also a cost benefit to society as these home visiting services promote the life course development of children into successful members of society.

Improved birth outcomes and decreasing infant mortality are among the main goals of the Department of Health. Implementation of the NFP Home Visiting model in identified at-risk communities is a strategy to achieve that goal. Reservation areas have particularly high rates of infant mortality, poverty, crime, domestic violence, high school dropouts, substance abuse, umemployment and child maltreatment. NFP was chosen due to evidence-based research documenting improved pregnancy outcomes and child health/development, and increased self-sufficiency. The program is being implemented with fidelity to the model while making adjustments for implementation in the high-risk reservation communities.

The project helps maintain capacity for five home visiting (HV) programs in the State's highest need counties, expands NFP in Kenosha, and provides support such as training/TA to programs funded through the development grant. Wisconsin’s (WI) need for a strong system of evidence-based HV programs is based on high percentages of preterm and low birth weight infants, high rates of infant mortality and substance abuse; and fairly high rates of reported child abuse and neglect. The project goal is to continue to develop a statewide system for at-risk WI communities that supports evidence-based HV as part of a robust early childhood education system for expectant and parenting families with children through the child’s 6th birthday

Based on a statewide needs assessment, counties were prioritized for being at risk with poor health and developmental outcomes for women and their children. To address this, evidence-based home visiting programs like Nurse-Family Partnership, Healthy Families America, and Parents as Teachers were implemented. These programs work directly with families to improve the health and developmental outcomes of children, to ensure children live in safe and nurturing environment, and to strengthen parent-child relationships. To assist the programs, a database was developed to support case management, data collection, and evaluation.

Indiana's MIECHV Program is intended to increase the capacity of home visiting within high-risk communities through the expansion of Healthy Families Indiana and the implementation and subsequent expansion of Nurse-Family Partnership. Indiana falls below the national levels on many maternal and infant risk indicators; evidence-based home visiting services have shown documented improvements in many of these areas. Indiana will achieve the goal of providing home visiting services to high-risk women and children through the maintenance of fidelity to each model and the development and strengthening of community referral and wrap-around service networks. A third-party evaluator will provide an objective view of Indiana’s MIECHV outcomes.

Indiana's MIECHV Program increases capacity of home visiting within high-risk communities through evidence based programs Healthy Families Indiana and Nurse-Family Partnership. Home visiting clients are often characterized by a combination of risk factors including: single parenting, mental illness, substance abuse, low educational attainment, history of interpersonal violence, and limited access to health care. Home visiting services address high-risk, low income families in need of services through education, intervention, and referrals to wrap around support services. A third-party evaluator provides an objective view of Indiana's MIECHV outcomes.

The NJ Home Visiting Program (NJ-HV) will advance state wide efforts to improve pregnancy and child health outcomes, prevent child maltreatment, and reduce racial/ethnic disparities in health and social well-being. NJ-HV will--1) expand evidence-based home visitation services to reach at-risk families in NJ’s 34 neediest communities; and 2) integrate home visiting into a coordinated, integrated system of care to identify at-risk families earlier for appropriate linkages to needed perinatal, early childhood and family support services.

As of December, 2014, Nurse Family Partnership is serving families in 12 out of 14 counties statewide via contracts from Vt Dept Health to home health agencies. MIECHV has strengthened system coordination and data infrastructure. Vermont is creating common outcome measures for evidenced based home visiting as required by June 2013 state legislation. Sustainability is planned via additional funding from Medicaid and a private foundation.

The purpose of Oregon’s MIECHV Program is to strengthen and expand the local home visiting infrastructure and enrollment capacity within a comprehensive, early childhood system. We are achieving this through collaborative partnerships among the home visiting models and programs as well as healthcare and early learning partners to coordinate referrals and identify common, key metrics to inform decisions that will enhance the matching of service array to community need.

MT did not have evidence based home visiting sites prior to the MIECHV funding opportunity. The FY 2010 MIECHV funding allowed for the completion of a MIECHV Needs Assessment, which aided in the distribution of FY 2010 and 2012 MIECHV funds to communities. Each community determined which of the 4 models best met the needs of their MIECHV target population. PAT, NFP, and HFA will be implemented in 7 communities that are required to report their progress meeting the federally mandated benchmarks and constructs. The external evaluator will assist state staff in determining the impact the MIECHV project had on Montana’s families enrolled in a MIECHV project.

The purpose of Nevada’s Home Visiting program is to decrease risks of poverty, low birth weight, prenatal care, domestic violence, child maltreatment and school readiness, as well as to address the lack of existing service infrastructure and capacity. The first goal is to build a quality state infrastructure to support and expand home visiting programs within Nevada’s at-risk communities. Subsequently, to work with implementing agencies to build effective home visiting programs. Developing a data management system and CQI plan are also essential to these goals. To this end, Nevada will closely collaborate with its implementing agencies and partners to leverage assets and initiative.

Washington State's MIEC Home Visiting program is providing more evidence-based home visiting models (EBHV) to at-risk areas and groups. Our needs assessment identified 32 geographic areas and 5 racial/ethnic groups as being at-risk. Four EBHV and 9 other home visiting programs existed in Washington. Only 2-11% of at-risk families received services. Our methods include: Sustainable finance strategy; community EBHV funding; data collection/management system; technical assistance/quality improvement, culturally appropriate implementation; and public engagement. In addition, we are integrating MIECHV with other early childhood activities that are happening in Washington State.

Maine’s MIECHV Project advances years of work towards an evidence-based, data-driven and family-centered home visiting system. The project increases direct service capacity in selected at-risk communities to benefit Maine’s most vulnerable families. Maine Families has identified a need for more detailed articulation of the Standards of Practice. In the coming year, we plan to develop and integrate a procedural manual that expands on our Standards with our Data Users Guide. This reference will be used by staff to improve fidelity of services, data collection, and reporting. Over the next year Maine Families will focus on local CQI projects to help home visitors make their data more meaningful and identify strategies to inform change.
