SAFE EXIT

Home Visitation

home visitation

When it comes to promoting health and safety outcomes for women and children impacted by abuse, research has shown that home visitation programs can make a significant difference in the lives of survivors of violence. Based on this evidence, The Affordable Care Act passed in 2010 includes provisions to support the expansion of maternal, infant, and early childhood home visitation programs.

FUTURES works with home visitation programs to provide domestic violence and child abuse training and education. In addition to promoting collaboration among home visitation, domestic violence programs, and health care providers, we support home visitors to more effectively assess and respond to domestic violence and counsel clients on healthy relationships.

FUTURES is at the forefront of national policy regarding home visitation and advocates for coordinated responses to domestic violence that include home visitation programs.
