Home Visiting Evidence of Effectiveness (HomVEE) was launched in fall 2009 to conduct a thorough and transparent review of the home visiting research literature. HomVEE provides an assessment of the evidence of effectiveness for home visiting program models that serve families with pregnant women and children from birth to kindergarten entry (that is, up through age 5). The HomVEE review is conducted by Mathematica Policy Research on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

The HomVEE review provides information about which home visiting program models have evidence of effectiveness as defined by DHHS, as well as detailed information about the samples of families who participated in the research, the outcomes measured in each study, and the implementation guidelines for each model.

This executive summary provides an overview of the HomVEE review process, a summary of the review results, and a link to the HomVEE website for more detailed information.
