CONNECT is the state’s new coordinated intake and referral program. Implemented by local Healthy Start Coalitions, CONNECT links families to home visiting program available in their community based on their eligibility, preferences and need. Participating home visiting programs include Healthy Families Florida, Parents as Teachers, Nurse-Family Partnership, Early Head Start, and state and federal Healthy Start.
A two-year learning collaborative funded by FL MIECHV created a foundation for the development and implementation of CONNECT. The effort was recognized as a promising practice by the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP) and is featured in the organization’s Innovation Station.
