Prevent Child Abuse New York (PCANY) received a 2018 legislative award to create the NYS Home Visiting Coordination Initiative.
We are committed to providing a forum for home visitors to learn, share, and develop new skill sets.
In 2019, PCANY contracted with 10 Backbone Organizations (BBOS) across NYS in Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) regions. A minimum of 2 summits were held and facilitated in each region. Home visitors, parents, and early childhood professionals were at the table to identify priority areas.
The completion of these meetings culminated in 10 regional development plans and Statewide recommendations.
The ultimate goal is to improve service delivery and facilitate cross program coordination.
This project is supported by the Preschool Development Grant Birth through Five Initiative (PDGB5), Grant Number 90TP005901, from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care.
