The National Home Visiting Resource Center (NHVRC) is a source for comprehensive information about early childhood home visiting. Its goal is to support sound decisions in policy and practice to help children and families thrive. The annual Home Visiting Yearbook explores home visiting nationally, but also dives deeper to look at home visiting in states, territories, and tribes, and in this latest data release, expands to include information about where families are served. In this poster presentation, we will highlight the latest information on the state of home visiting across the country, including information on how many children are being served and how many families could potentially benefit among states. Additionally, we will share data on where home visiting programs are located and include information on where families are who are receiving services. (author abstract)
