None of us is as smart as all of us.

It’s called teamwork: a collective effort to reach a single goal…often a goal so big, hairy and audacious there can’t be one single solution.

What could be a bigger goal than raising a generation to be healthy, safe and ready to learn amidst one of the worst economic climates of our time? So teamwork (or collaboration) is what HRSA had in mind for the federal maternal, infant, early childhood home visiting program.

There is no simple solution to improving the health and safety of pregnant women and children, and there’s certainly no single solution.

Which is why even HRSA and the Administration for Children and Families are collaborating on this initiative, bringing together the expertise of nine home visiting models (including Parents as Teachers) who have proven expertise in health care, developmental services for children, early education, parenting skills, child abuse prevention, and nutrition education or assistance.

Big challenges call for big solutions.
When it comes to our nation’s children, none of us is as smart as all of us working together.
