Visualizing Home Visiting Programs In NYS

"Home visiting" encompasses a range of models that offer services to pregnant women, infants and families with young children in their homes. Six research-based home visiting programs are available in parts of New York State. 

The Council on Children and Families, with input from the Schuyler Center-led Home Visiting Work group, has developed a series of maps that provide a big picture view of home visiting in New York State. These maps show the availability of home visiting across the state, layered with the number of children in poverty, as one indicator of need.

Check out this mapping tool on the Council's website and visualize home visiting in New York -- where they are now and where they need to go!
