Integrating Home Visiting in State and Tribal Early Childhood Systems

This framework outlines strategies states and tribes can take to better integrate home visiting into comprehensive early childhood systems and shares examples of how states and tribes are implementing them.

In 2016, ZERO TO THREE convened a community of practice (CoP) to assist teams from six states (Illinois, Missouri, New York, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin) in strengthening connections between home visiting and the early childhood system in their states. ZERO TO THREE developed this framework in collaboration with the CoP members to share strategies and examples with the field. It highlights seven areas where there are opportunities to better integrate home visiting in the early childhood system. Each area includes a definition, a list of strategies, and several state and tribal examples.
