Assessment and Mapping of Community Connections in Home Visiting, 2017 - 201

Project Overview

The goal of the Assessment and Mapping of Community Connections in Home Visiting (AMC-HV) project is to identify and apply innovative methods to better understand the community-level systems and networks in which the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program operates, including the availability of community service providers that home visiting programs can refer families to, and the relationships between home visiting programs and community resources.

The project will:

  • Examine relevant approaches for analyzing community networks in home visiting, early care and education, and related health and human services fields.
  • Identify and build on existing efforts to synthesize and apply information gathered about these approaches to create a dynamic method of understanding community connections in home visiting.
  • Identify and use tools such as social network analysis, geomapping, and/or other appropriate, state-of-the-art methods to understand these community connections.

The contract was awarded to Child Trends, with a subcontract to Trilogy Interactive.

This project is being led by the Administration for Children and Families in collaboration with the Health Resources and Services Administration.

The points of contact are Pooja Gupta, Amanda Coleman, and Nancy Geyelin Margie.
