For nearly 150,000 families nationwide, voluntary home-visiting programs are a vital support.

Congress will soon decide whether to reauthorize the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program. Council for a Strong America educates policymakers about the connection between home visiting and stronger families, reductions in child abuse, and other positive outcomes.
