About The Network

The Arkansas Home Visiting Network (AHVN) promotes high quality and evidence-based home visiting services to Arkansas families during pregnancy and until children enter kindergarten. The AHVN facilitates activities among its members to promote program collaboration and to raise public awareness about home visiting, to expand and sustain home visiting services, to provide supplemental home visiting training to collect and share data, and to share relevant policy and research information.

The AHVN includes representatives from home visiting programs and stakeholders throughout the state, some of which, but not all, are funded through the federal Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) grant. Membership in the network is open to any program representatives offering home visiting services to families from the time a mother is pregnant until children enter kindergarten or representatives from stakeholder organizations that provide support to home visiting services.

Our Mission: To build stronger families and brighter futures for the children and communities of Arkansas.

Our Vision: That every family in our state is equipped to help its children achieve their greatest potential.
