The Supporting Family Economic Well-Being Through Home Visiting (HomeEc) project is identifying promising practices supporting family economic well-being that hold potential for inclusion in home visiting programs; the project is soliciting nominations of practices – that is, services, strategies, or activities – to support family economic well-being. Practices should be stand-alone or may be a component of or add-on to a larger intervention, such as an early childhood home visiting model. HomeEc seeks nominations of practices that:
- Support family economic well-being by addressing (1) basic human needs (such as food, housing and utilities, health care, transportation, clothing, and education); (2) financial security (such as financial education); or (3) employment readiness (such as case management, employment coaching, financial education, soft skills training, work readiness activities, and job development or job placement)
- Serve families with young children and/or pregnant women
- Have written protocols, manuals, or other documentation available that describes how to implement or administer the practice
- Are delivered individually or in a group (that is, a staff person working directly with clients)
The project is funded by the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in collaboration with the Health Resources and Services Administration and with ACF’s Tribal Home Visiting Program.
If you have information about current practices that could inform this project, please send it to HomeEc@mathematica-mpr.com by April 15, 2022.
