Early Impact Virginia is excited to announce that Virginia has adopted a plan to strengthen and grow home visiting in the Commonwealth. Virginia’s Plan for Home Visiting was endorsed by the Children’s Cabinet in May 2019, and is intended to guide the development of a comprehensive framework for coordination of home visiting program services within the early childhood system to ensure quality service delivery and sustainable growth. On June 5, 2019, Governor Northam referenced the plan and instructed state agencies to work to scale home visiting as part of his strategy to eliminate racial disparity in Virginia’s maternal mortality rate by 2025.
The Plan for Home Visiting was developed in collaboration with members of the Alliance for Early Childhood Home Visiting. Alliance members represent Virginia’s eight statewide home visiting models, as well as other early childhood partners from across the Commonwealth.
