Take Root Home Visitation Evaluation – Marine Corps

Partnership/Type: Office of Military Community and Family Policy
Status: Current Project

Take Root Home Visitation (TRHV) was developed through a collaboration between the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy (MC&FP) and the Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness at Penn State (Clearinghouse) to meet the needs of home visitation professionals working with military families who are or may be at risk for child maltreatment. Now that TRHV has been developed, the Marine Corps is piloting the curriculum with it’s home visitors and families. There are three priorities of the evaluation: (1) Examine the benefits and limitations of using a DoD developed home visitation curriculum in standard practice across the Navy, (2) Obtain feedback from stakeholders (i.e., home visitors and parents) about the TRHV curriculum for continuous quality improvement, and (3) Measure the effectiveness of TRHV in terms of implementation and client outcomes.
