dc.description.abstract Children from low-income families are more likely than those from higher income families to have poor social, emotional, cognitive, behavioral, and health outcomes. One approach that has helped parents and their young children is home visiting, which provides information, resources, and support to expectant parents and families with young children. This brief summarizes evidence from existing studies on the impact of early childhood home visiting on children 5 and older for four national models of home visiting. Key findings include the following: (1) Evidence-based home visiting has improved outcomes for parents and children across a wide range of child ages, outcome areas, and national models. (2) Evidence-based home visiting appears to be cost-effective in the long term. (3) The largest benefits from evidence-based home visiting come through reduced spending on government programs and increased individual earnings. (4) Home visiting has reduced the prevalence of child maltreatment. (5) Among adolescents, the studies have found statistically significant reductions in involvement with the criminal justice system, reductions in substance use among young adolescents and reductions in mortality by age 20.
