Acknowledgments

The 2019 Home Visiting Yearbook was developed by James Bell Associates in partnership with the Urban Institute. Support was provided by the Heising-Simons Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of the foundations.

A number of people contributed their time and expertise to the 2019 Yearbook, which was produced under the general direction of Jill Filene and Allison Meisch of James Bell Associates and Julia Isaacs and Heather Sandstrom of the Urban Institute. We acknowledge the contributions of other members of the NHVRC team, including Devon Genua, Courtney Harrison, Alexandra Joraanstad, Ashley Kelley, Eleanor Lauderback, Hannah Levy, Doreen Major Ryan, Kassandra Miller, Joelle Ruben, Charmaine Runes, and Mariel Sparr. Additionally, Shirley Adelstein, Alyssa Harris, Loren Masters, Silke Taylor, Amanda Thomson, Yuan Wang, and Ziyun Wang provided invaluable support for data quality assurance and analysis.

We also acknowledge the expert feedback and guidance provided by our Advisory Committee members: Moushumi Beltangady, Kristine Campagna, Deborah Daro, Nicole Denmark, Anne Duggan, Diedra Henry-Spires, Annette Wisk Jacobi, Carlise King, Kyle Peplinski, Lesley Schwartz, Christine Silva, Lauren Supplee, Jeffrey Valentine, and David W. Willis. We are grateful for the support of our partners at the Heising-Simons Foundation (Malia Ramler and Deanna Gomby) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Claire Gibbons).

Special thanks are due to the families, researchers, home visiting staff, and others who graciously shared their stories to help bring the data to life. We appreciate the efforts of the representatives from states, territories, and tribes who shared data. We are also grateful for the representatives from home visiting models who shared their data and time with us. The 2019 Home Visiting Yearbook would not have been possible without their support.

We are grateful to Threespot for digital design services and to Ann Emery of Depict Data Studio for data visualization expertise.
