Strengthening the home visiting workforce
The Enhanced Home Visiting (EHV) Project is aimed to improve the home visiting workforce by providing home visitors and supervisors with mental health consultation, mindfulness /trauma informed training and consultation, infant and early childhood mental health courses, and the Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Endorsements.
The EHV Project began in 2017 with seven home visiting sites in Metro Denver. In early 2021, the project expanded to six additional PAT and HIPPY sites throughout the state. In October 2021, the project expanded further to include all Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) PAT and HIPPY sites in Colorado. The EHV Project now includes 20 sites around the state.
