Who Is Being Served?

By Emerging Models

Home visiting programs receive local, private, state, and federal funding to support services delivered through emerging models. The information below quantifies and describes families served through emerging home visiting models in 2022, regardless of how the services were funded.

These data are separate from those included in the National Profile (which focuses on families served through evidence-based models). Ten emerging models provided data about the families they serve. (Source: Emerging models represented in the data include Arizona Health Start Program, AVANCE Parent-Child Education Program (PCEP), Baby TALK, Early Steps to School Success (ESSS), Following Baby Back Home (FBBH), High Risk Perinatal Program (HRPP), Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP), ParentChild+, Team for Infants Exposed to Substance use (TIES) Program, and Welcome Baby. See the [methodology section]( of the 2021 Home Visiting Yearbook, which includes the most recent description of how emerging models are selected, for more information. )Go to footnote #>1
