Child abuse prevention
Home visiting programs can reduce by half the rate of child abuse and neglect and involvement with Child Protective Services.
Better birth outcomes
Pregnant mothers who received a home visit during the first four months of their pregnancies had 75% fewer low birthweight babies than those who didn’t receive a visit.
Children who received home visits were 56 percent more likely to graduate from high school than children who didn’t receive home visits.
