HHS has determined that Healthy Start is not eligible for review by HomVEE because it is a federal grant program and not a home visiting model. Information on Healthy Start has been removed from the website.

Entries in this row combine information across all versions of PALS except for PALS Infant. The main version of PALS has no high- or moderate-quality impact studies. Some other versions of PALS have at least one such study, but no version of the model other than PALS Infant meets HHS criteria for an evidence-based home visiting model.

Entries in this row combine information across all versions of SafeCare except for SafeCare Augmented. The main version of SafeCare has no high- or moderate-quality impact studies. Some other versions of SafeCare have at least one such study, but no version of the model other than SafeCare Augmented meets HHS criteria for an evidence-based home visiting model. Planned Activities Training (a SafeCare module) and Cellular Phone Enhanced Planned Activities Training (a SafeCare module with an add-on) show evidence of effectiveness.
