Model description

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.
