NHVRC State Profiles present data provided by evidence-based models, which include both MIECHV and non-MIECHV data. • Percentages may not add up to 100 due to rounding. • To protect confidentiality, race and ethnicity categories with 10 or fewer participants were replaced with *. • Public insurance includes Medicaid, CHIP, and TRICARE. • Low income is defined as family income below the federal poverty threshold. • Single mothers include single, never married mothers or pregnant women. • EHS programs in MT offer a combination of service options. EHS data are not included because home-based service data cannot be isolated from statewide data. • Family Spirit reports children served, families served, and home visits only. • HFA reports primary language of caregivers. • PAT data for child insurance status and primary language are not included. • In 2018, SafeCare/SafeCare Augmented met standards of evidence as determined by HomVEE. This profile includes SafeCare/SafeCare Augmented (SafeCare) data. SafeCare does not report the number of children served. The number of families served was included as a proxy for children served. SafeCare does not report caregiver education, child age, or child insurance status.
