Our Tribal Home Visiting Program is designed to develop and strengthen capacity to support and promote the health and well-being of Indigenous families; expand the evidence-base around home visiting in tribal communities; and support and strengthen cooperation and linkages between programs that service Indigenous children and their families.

Home visiting provides individualized services with the intent of improving outcomes for families with young children.  The goals of the Tribal Home Visiting Program include:  

  • Supporting the development of happy, healthy, and successful Indigenous children and families through a coordinated home visiting strategy that addresses critical maternal and child health, development, early learning, family support, and child abuse and neglect prevention needs.  
  • Implementing high-quality, culturally relevant, evidence-based home visiting programs in our communities.  
  • Expanding the evidence base around home visiting interventions with Indigenous populations.   
  • Supporting and strengthening cooperation and coordination and promoting linkages among various early childhood programs, resulting in coordinated, comprehensive early childhood systems.
