The California Home Visiting Program (CHVP) is designed for overburdened families who are at risk for adverse childhood experiences, such as child maltreatment, domestic violence, substance abuse and mental illness. Home visiting is a preventive intervention focused on positive parenting and development aimed to give parents the tools and know-how to independently raise their children. CHVP's goals include promoting maternal health and well-being, improving infant and child health and development, strengthening family functioning and cultivating strong communities.
