Child Health Investment Partnership (CHIP) of Roanoke Valley’s home visiting program is now considered evidence-informed and is prepared to pursue evidence-based status. In order to prove the effectiveness of CHIP of Roanoke Valley’s home visiting program on low-income children and families, criteria must be met through a Home Visiting Evidence of Effectiveness (HomVEE) review.  HomVEE was launched in 2009 to assess the evidence of effectiveness for home visiting program models that serve families with pregnant women and children 0- 5. There are only 17 evidence-based home visiting programs nationally.  CHIP is working toward establishment of adequate evidence to apply for evidence based practice status.
