Florida MIECHV is helping to build a strong and competent workforce to deliver home visiting and other family support programs.  Home visiting staff from MIECHV-funded programs and community partners serving families with young children receive web-based and on-site training. Professional development activities are coordinated by the Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida, a state MIECHV partner.  Sign up here to receive the bimonthly MIECHV Professional Development newsletter.

  • Interventions (Seeking Safety, SCRIPT)
  • Foundations (Social-Emotional Development of Children, Trauma-Informed Care, Pregnancy & Women’s Health, Domestic Violence & others)
