Evidence-based home visiting shows potential to prevent maltreatment, which has significant societal costs. To calculate potential savings stemming from negative outcomes, the cost of program delivery and intervention must be understood in relation to outcomes.
Casey Family Programs collaborated with Mathematica Policy Research to conduct a comprehensive cost study of evidence-based home visiting programs participating in the federally-funded Supporting Evidence-Based Home Visiting (EBHV) Initiative. Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago contributed to data collection and analysis for this effort. Grant funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation also provided support for the study.
