The mission of the Every Child Succeeds® home visitation service is to offer Greater Cincinnati first-time mothers and their families support to ensure an optimal start for their children.
Every Child Succeeds (ECS) is a collaborative, evidence-based home visitation program that includes 9 provider agencies whose social workers, child development specialists and nurses provide services for first-time, at-risk mothers* on a regular basis from the time of pregnancy until the child’s third birthday. Designed to optimize child development and promote a variety of positive outcomes, ECS provides home visits to families in seven counties** in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky using one of two national models: Healthy Families America®, Health Access Nuturing Development Services (HAND)®.
