Promoting and protecting the health and safety of all Idahoans
Empowering pregnant women, children and families
through evidence-based home visiting services.


The Idaho Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program is provided through local organizations, managed by the Division of Public Health in the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, and funded by a federal grant from the Health Resources and Services (HRSA): US Department of Health and Human Services.

The MIECHV program is designed to identify and provide comprehensive services to improve outcomes for families who reside in at risk communities and improve coordination of services for target communities.

The Idaho MIECHV program offers two evidence-based home visiting models; Parents as Teachers and Nurse Family Partnership.
