Moving Home Visiting Forward: Lessons and Directions from Pennsylvania’s MIECHV Evaluation
By PolicyLab | September 13, 2018
Stoneleigh Fellow Meredith Matone and her PolicyLab colleagues, Katherine Kellom and Jennifer Whittaker, recently shared insights and opportunities gained from a large-scale evaluation of Pennsylvania’s home visiting services.
For the last five years, PolicyLab has collaborated with Pennsylvania’s Office of Child Development and Early Learning to evaluate the Commonwealth’s home visiting system. Our partnership on this large-scale evaluation is the result of strong congressional desire to understand how the expansion of evidence-based home visiting services through the federal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program is impacting the lives of families across the country. As our team nears the end of the evaluation, we would like to share what we have learned and where we are going next.
