Urge Congress to Continue Effective Home Visiting Programs
Meet Akeri and her dad, Denzel. Akeri’s family has fallen on some tough times but her dad still wants the best for his daughter. He enrolled in a home visiting program so he could learn how to be a great parent and help Akeri succeed.
A federal program called the Maternal, Infant, Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program helps to fund home visiting programs like the one Akeri’s family participates in. It is an effective, voluntary program for families living in poverty. Through educating parents, supporting child literacy and connecting families with social services, it helps kids succeed.
Congress is running out of time to pass a law to ensure this vital program that empowers families continues. Please urge your members of Congress to renew MIECHV today!
