We are committed to the implementation and research of SafeCare, an evidence-based home visitation program that has been shown to reduce child maltreatment among families with a history for maltreatment or with risk factors for maltreatment.
SafeCare is effective in supporting both intervention and prevention initiatives for reducing and preventing the maltreatment of young children.
Studies on SafeCare have shown positive outcomes in improved parenting skills, reduced parental depression, increased program engagement and completion, and increased program satisfaction among parent participants.
Training sessions are based on our skills-enhancement training methodology called The SafeCare 4 (Explain-Model-Practice-Feedback).
Our partners at the Department of Health & Human Services of Humboldt County, California, have produced an evaluation report for the purpose of quality improvement examining SafeCare impacts from January 2013 to June 2016. To view the full report’s additional findings, click here.
