The Georgia Governor’s Office for Children and Families will receive more than $2.5 million in Fiscal Year 2010 grants allocated for the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV). The funding will be used to expand three evidence-based home visiting models in six counties. These programs are expected to serve more than 400 additional families per year. Parents as Teachers services will be expanded in three of the six counties.

The federal MIECHV program is designed to strengthen and increase program goals, coordinate services and improve outcomes for at-risk communities through early childhood home visiting programs. Parents as Teachers, the nation’s largest network of home visiting programs, has been improving outcomes for families nationwide for more than 25 years. The Parents as Teachers evidence-based home visiting model is one of just eight models approved for use under federal guidelines for MIECHV.

“Parents as Teachers has been a model that the Governor’s Office for Children and Families has promoted in Georgia for many years to help ensure school readiness for young children,” said Carole Steele, Prevention Programs Coordinator.

Last year in Georgia, more than 1,800 children and their families received Parents as Teachers services. Of those, many faced a variety of family risk factors such as low income, teen pregnancy, and involvement with mental health and social services, all issues Parents as Teachers educators are uniquely trained to address. If left unresolved, those issues can quickly escalate and negatively impact the development of young children. Parent educators also provide well-researched information to help all families make good parenting decisions. They screen children for developmental issues and connect families to each other and additional community resources.

“We believe Parents as Teachers can help strengthen Georgia’s capacity for addressing the overall health, safety, and well-being of families and children at risk,” Steele said. “We are excited about the opportunity to expand evidence-based home visiting services that have been implemented in the state and develop a plan to integrate more fully these services into an early childhood system of care.”
