Evidence of model effectiveness
This model does not meet the criteria established by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for an “evidence-based early childhood home visiting service delivery model” for the general population or for tribal populations because there are no high- or moderate-rated effectiveness studies of the model.
The Pride in Parenting (PIP) demonstration program aimed to increase mothers’ use of preventative health care for themselves and their children, and improve the safety of child-rearing environments. It offered one year of services to mothers with newborns who received late or inadequate prenatal care. PIP included home visits in which visitors provided information on parenting, child care, health, and child development. In addition, hospital-based group sessions were offered to expand on those topics. Home visits were offered weekly from birth through 4 months of age. From 5 months to 12 months, the home visits alternated with biweekly group sessions. For more information, please read the Model Overview.
Extent of evidence
Criteria established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Notes: If the model does not meet criterion 3 but meets criteria 1 and 2 based on findings from subgroups, the impacts must be replicated in the same domain in two or more studies using non-overlapping analytic study samples. HomVEE assesses and reports criteria 4 and 5 for all models that have well-designed research, but meeting those two criteria is only required of models for which all findings are from randomized controlled trials. Please read the HHS criteria for evidence-based models for more information.
