Studies show that maternal, infant, and early childhood home visiting can be effective at improving maternal and child outcomes and yielding strong returns on investment for states and communities.

The home visiting data snapshots linked below show the extent to which the State as a whole, and each New York county, could benefit from home visiting as measured by community data on problems that home visiting has been proven to help resolve, including child poverty, poor child and maternal health, and child welfare involvement.

While maternal, infant, and early childhood home visiting has been in operation in New York for decades, these snapshots highlight significant need for investment and expansion.
