Why Now?
Social isolation and stress are taking their toll on all families nationwide. Unfortunately, depression and intimate partner violence are on the rise, and many aspects of home visiting are harder now. Together, we can take powerful action to make a difference for families. Here’s how:
  • IN-DEPTH AND EXPERT SUPPORT: Your awardee team and participating local implementing agencies will receive three virtual learning sessions and 12 monthly coaching calls from EDC, Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. 
  • PARENT LEADERSHIP: You will learn new strategies to boost parent engagement and partner with parents in leading the change. We provide specialized support for parent leadership through expert coaching, as well as a comprehensive parent leadership toolkit.
  • PEER INTERACTION: You will have ongoing peer-to-peer support from other MIECHV awardees—learning together, sharing struggles, and celebrating successes.
  • BREAKTHROUGH CHANGE: You will see rapid and significant improvements for families. We can help you spread interventions that have ignited breakthrough change in home visiting—improving the health, mental health, and well-being of children and families nationwide
  • REDUCED BURDEN: You will receive all of the support and tools that you need to achieve breakthrough change—we make it easy by providing playbooks, user-friendly on-demand data dashboards, advanced coaching in CQI, and expert faculty!  All of our work aligns with your CQI planning and efforts toward improved performance on MIECHV measures.

Timeline: Learning networks kick off in February of 2021 and go through May of 2022.
