Michigan's Home Visiting Initiative
Michigan's Early Childhood Home Visiting programs provide voluntary, prevention focused family support services in the homes of pregnant women and families with children aged 0-5.
Early childhood home visiting programs connect trained professionals with vulnerable and at-risk mothers and families to nurture, support, coach, educate and offer encouragement with the goal that all children grow and develop in a safe and stimulating environment.
Early childhood home visiting programs are designed to provide support to parents and caregivers and to connect them to community resources and services. By concentrating on building trust with families, providers work to develop positive interactions focused on the importance of maternal health before, during, and after pregnancy. Working in a one-on-one environment, providers encourage and assist families in caring for infants and in building strong, healthy relationships with their toddlers and young children.
The Michigan Home Visiting Initiative is part of Michigan's Early Childhood System, and is committed to offering all children a Great Start.
