Home Visiting is a service provided in the homes of pregnant women, children from birth to eight years, and their families. Home Visiting has been found to improve parenting, school readiness, and health. It can help prevent child abuse and neglect. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Health Care Reform Act) requires each state to conduct a needs assessment in order to receive the 2011 Title V (Maternal and Child Health) Block Grant funds. This needs assessment will identify communities at risk, the quality and capacity of existing early childhood home visiting programs and the State’s capacity for providing substance abuse treatment and counseling services. http://dcf.wisconsin.gov/children/home_visiting_needs_assessment/default.htm
