The 2023 Home Visiting Yearbook includes data from organizations that implement home visiting models and from agencies in states, territories, and the District of Columbia (hereafter referred to as states) that have received funds through the federal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program.
Information on home visiting supported by Tribal MIECHV reflects data provided by the Administration for Children and Families. The 2023 Yearbook also draws on public data sources such as the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.
This year’s publication includes—
Aggregate service numbers and participant demographics from evidence-based model data
State-specific information about home visiting services from evidence-based model data and potential beneficiaries from Census data
Aggregate service and demographic data for programs led by Indigenous organizations from nine evidence-based models
State-specific information on MIECHV home visiting services from state MIECHV awardees and a table containing aggregate data for Tribal MIECHV grantees
State-specific information on family well-being and potential need for services, including information disaggregated by race and ethnicity to highlight the need for more equitable access to services for families
Exploring Pathways to Leadership
Investment matters when nurturing and sustaining leaders who have historically faced barriers to leadership roles, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). Start Early recognized this critical need and recently launched Leadership Pathways for BIPOC Home Visitors: An Exploration. The national project centers the collective voice of BIPOC home visitors and supervisors in defining home visiting leadership and identifying necessary supports within the field. Project Leaders Clarissa Williamson (Georgetown University Parenting Support Program) and Claudette Kabera (Community of Hope) have connected with home visiting professionals nationwide to collect key messages that transcend years of experience, program models, and geographic location. Say Claudette and Clarissa, “BIPOC home visitors are the backbone of the communities in which they serve and deserve to be recognized and celebrated.”
