Project: Early Years Home Visitation Outcomes Project

This project is a collaborative effort of organizations who serve children and families in Wisconsin. The goal is to provide a common outcome measurement process and support its use in home visitation programs throughout WI.

By providing the tools for effective program evaluation, the project seeks to improve the quality and accountability of home visitation.
