Home Visiting Coordination Initiative (HVCI)

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. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official view of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families.

The Home Visiting Coordination Initiative is housed at Prevent Child Abuse New York. Each region in NYS (see region map) hosted summits with parents and professionals in 2019. Meetings were locally facilitated and organized by backbone organizations (BBO's) to connect service providers and families within each community. This opportunity highlighted successes and barriers, culminating in 10 regional development plans and Statewide recommendations (2020 HVCI report). These recommendations will be discussed and refined during the project period. The goal is to implement recommendations that will inform local and Statewide work.
