Evidence-Based Home Visiting Program

Georgia’s Evidence-Based Home Visiting (EBHV) Program, under the Georgia Department of Public Health,
provides new parents the supports they may need when having a baby. EBHV gives at-risk pregnant women,
new moms, and families with children 0-5 years old the skills they need to raise healthy children.1 The overall
goals of home visiting programs are to:

• increase healthy pregnancies,
• improve parenting skills,
• improve child health and development,
• strengthen family connectedness to community support, and reduce child abuse and neglect.
