In December of 2000, the Home Visit Forum voted to establish an area of collaborative inquiry around three questions all related to the central strategic issue of family engagement in home visitation:

  • How do you recruit participants?
  • How do you engage participants?
  • How do you retain participants?

Supported by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, each participating organization received a mini-grant to embark on a focused research endeavor that addresses these questions. The results from these research studies provided valuable information for each organization, for all Home Visit Forum participants, and for the home visitation field at large.

Summaries of the results are available to download in PDF format.
