Our latest brief outlines the history and principles of precision home visiting.
HARC houses a diverse practice-based research network for conducting collaborative, field-initiated studies with local home visiting programs, regardless of the model used. Any local program that provides home visiting for expectant families and/or families of children birth to five years as its primary service strategy is welcome to join, as are directors of local networks and state networks, and researchers who have an interest in home visiting research.
