Home Visiting Toolkit for Children in Child Care

As home visiting programs have gained popularity over the past few years, attention is now moving to the children who spend substantial time being cared for by adults other than their parents. In response to the growing interest, the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) created a toolkit for State policymakers and advocates, offering tips and strategies for expanding access to State and federally funded home visiting models via coordination with family, friend, and neighbor (FFN) child care providers. Information is organized in the following sections and appendix:

  • Part I: What are Family, Friend, and Neighbor and Home Visiting Partnerships, and How Can They Help You Reach Families?
  • Part II: A Home Visiting and Family, Friend, and Neighbor Partnership Planning Tool
  • Part III: Case Studies of Existing Home Visiting-FFN Partnerships
  • Appendix A: An Overview of Home Visiting Models


Home Away From Home: A Toolkit for Planning Home Visiting Partnerships With Family, Friend, and Neighbor Caregivers was funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Birth to Five Policy Alliance, the George Gund Foundation, and an anonymous donor. The paper was written by Christine Johnson-Staub and Stephanie Schmit and is available on the CLASP website:
