SOFTWARE APP / PLATFORM FOR HOME VISITING PROGRAMS FOR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
Why are we building a software app/platform for home visiting programs?
Millions of children are not reaching their potential as they grow
* Over 40% of children are not fully prepared for Kindergarten
* Over 90% of neural connections are formed in people’s brains from birth to age 3
Evidence-based home visiting boosts children’s development, but most don’t receive this
* In 2016, over 23 million U.S. babies, toddlers, or 3-5 yr olds not in Pre-K or K could benefit from home visiting. Of all pregnant women and families of these children, 53% had one or more “high priority factors” and 22% had two or more “high priority factors.” Yet only 312,154 children in 2016 were served by a “home visiting program -- a gap of millions.
Existing home-visiting programs have various limited data systems, but not a robust model that helps all constituencies with their needs.
Our technology equips a range of models, which can help them to expand, to serve even more children and families.
