Model overview

Theoretical approach

Oklahoma’s Community-Based Family Resource and Support (CBFRS) program was developed to improve the health and development outcomes of mothers and their infants. The program targeted first-time mothers and was designed to provide an intensive level of service through weekly and biweekly visits. Based on research suggesting that home visiting provided by professionals as opposed to paraprofessionals might provide more positive impacts, the developers decided to use professionals in the field of child development to provide the home visits.
