Strong Staff and Family Relationships: The Heart of Tribal Home Visiting Programs

This brief focuses on the importance of family engagement and the innovative approaches that grantees are using to support families’ full participation in home visiting programs. It summarizes approaches to family engagement that Tribal MIECHV grantees are taking to increase the likelihood of authentic partnership between staff and families to make the most of the home visiting opportunity. These approaches include, but are not limited to: building staff capacity to successfully engage families; ensuring that home visiting is a beneficial fit for families; and engaging families in ways that are most meaningful to them. The brief concludes with stories from grantees and families that illustrate the power of strong staff and family relationships for supporting child and family well-being.

We thank the following grantees for sharing their wisdom through this brief: Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma; Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes; Lake County Tribal Health Consortium; Native American Health Center, Inc.; Native American Professional Parent Resources; Riverside San Bernardino County Indian Health, Inc.; Taos Pueblo; Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians; and United Indians of All Tribes Foundation.
