Evidence of model effectiveness
This model meets 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, but does not meet the criteria for tribal populations.
Oklahoma’s Community-Based Family Resource and Support (CBFRS) program, which targeted first-time mothers, was developed to improve maternal and child health and child development. Weekly or biweekly home visits beginning before 28 weeks gestation continued to the child’s first birthday. The frequency of the home visits varied based upon the program phase. Home visits followed a standardized curriculum that covered maternal and child health, child growth and development, and parenting skills. For more information, please read the Model Overview.
