The Pew Center's Business Case for Home Visiting 

"The family plays a powerful role in shaping adult outcomes that is not fully recognized by current American policies. As programs are currently configured, interventions early in the lives of disadvantaged children have substantially higher economic returns than later interventions."

James Heckman, Henry Schultz Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago and 2000 Nobel Laureate in Economics

The Pew Center states a strong case for the importance of home visiting programs in preparing tomorrow's work force.
