About MIECHV Program

The MIECHV program is designed to strengthen and improve programs and coordination of services for at-risk communities and to improve outcomes for those families. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) see home visiting as one of several strategies embedded in a quality early childhood system that promotes maternal, infant and early childhood health, safety and development, as well as strong parent-child relationships.

The Parents as Teachers FIT

Parents as Teachers is a strong evidence-based home visiting model providing a broad context of parenting education and family support, and building protective factors, especially for those families in vulnerable situations. At its core, Parents as Teachers is relationship-based and parenting-focused. Our approach and curriculum focus on parent-child interaction, development-centered parenting, and family well-being; on strengths, capabilities and skills; and on building protective factors within the family. Parents as Teachers serves a range of families with high needs—not just first time parents, pregnant parents or teen parents—and offers services throughout the continuum from prenatal to kindergarten entry.

A newly revised curriculum with an increased emphasis on evidence-based practices for working with vulnerable populations and a strengthened home visiting model with a heightened focus on quality means Parents as Teachers is well positioned to demonstrate success and document model fidelity.

See why Strengthening FamiliesTM protective factors increase our effectiveness.
