New Report Urges Expansion of Home Visiting as a Tool to Fight Child Poverty
A A A

Schuyler Center has issued a new report, Home Is Where the Start Is: Expanding Home Visiting to Strengthen All of New York’s Families, to highlight maternal, infant and early childhood home visiting’s effectiveness as a tool to diminish child poverty and improve health, child welfare and education outcomes.  The report makes the case that evidence-based home visiting— currently funded to serve less than 5% of New York’s 278,000 young children living in poverty—should be dramatically expanded to reach all of the New York families who could benefit.
