Exploring Home Visiting’s Unmet Need: Comparing Who Could Benefit to Who Is Served

December 13, 2019

Abstract

More than 286,000 families received evidence-based home visiting services in 2018. Despite home visiting’s reach, the need for services is greater than its footprint. This brief uses data from the recently released 2019 Home Visiting Yearbook to explore the following questions: (1) What percentage of potential beneficiaries and high-priority families are served by home visiting? (2) How does the percentage of children served vary by child age? (3) How does the percentage of unmet need vary by state?

 

This brief was developed for the National Home Visiting Resource Center and is available on its website. The NHVRC is led by James Bell Associates in partnership with the Urban Institute. Support is provided by the Heising-Simons Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
