Home Visiting Programs: Reviewing Evidence of Effectiveness September 2016

Publication Date: October 5, 2016


This year’s Home Visiting Evidence of Effectiveness (HomVEE) review of home visiting models covered six program models: one new model and five previously reviewed models. The one new model, the Parent-Child Assistance Program, and one previously reviewed model, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, do not meet U.S. Department of Health and Human Services criteria for an evidence-based program model. HomVEE also updated reviews of four other previously reviewed models that meet HHS criteria: Early Head Start-Home Visiting, Family Spirit®, Healthy Families America®, and Nurse Family Partnership®.

This executive summary provides detailed information on all 45 home visiting models reviewed by HomVEE and the summary brief describes the review process, review results, and the 19 program models determined to meet criteria for an “evidence-based early childhood home visiting service delivery model.”
