The effectiveness of high-quality early childhood experiences is validated by decades of rigorous research and developmental science.
In a study measuring the impact of 14 evidence-based early childhood home visiting service delivery models, Healthy Families was the only program to have favorable impacts in all eight domains—child development and school readiness; child health; family economic self-sufficiency; linkages and referrals; maternal health; positive parenting practices; reductions in child maltreatment; and reductions in juvenile delinquency, family violence, and crime.
