A healthy birth and positive experiences in early childhood can promote health and development. One approach that has improved outcomes for children and their parents is home visiting, which provides individually tailored support, resources, and information to expectant parents and families with young children. This brief summarizes recently published reports from two national studies of evidence-based early childhood home visiting: the Mother and Infant Home Visiting Program Evaluation (MIHOPE) and MIHOPE-Strong Start.

This report examines four specific aspects of the challenge before us: • The need for a much greater supply of homes affordable to our nation’s lowest-income seniors. • The importance of transforming homes and communities so that seniors can age with options, a desire shared by the overwhelming majority of older adults. • The imperative to better integrate health care and supportive services with housing, recognizing that this integration has the potential to improve health outcomes for seniors and reduce the costs borne by the health care system. • The need to deploy technologies on a far wider scale to help all Americans age successfully.
