National Day of Action Home Visiting - Wednesday, July 12

July 12, 2017

Join DEC and other members of the Home Visiting Coalition in calling, emailing, and tweeting your Senators and Representatives to urge them to preserve and expand the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV).


MIECHV, an evidence-based and voluntary parent coaching support for families and children, expires on September 30, 2017 – a few short months from now– if Congress fails to act. Home visiting helps parents learn skills and gain support to be the best parents they can be. Proven outcomes of MIECHV include improvements in prenatal care and birth weight; early childhood health and development; school readiness; and economic stability. MIECHV has also been shown to lead to reductions in child abuse, neglect, and injuries; juvenile delinquency and crime; and dependence on public assistance.
