The Brookings Institution hosted a panel discussion on reducing childhood poverty and explored universal social programs for families with newborns, particularly those in low-income and at-risk communities. Researchers discussed the impact of home visitor maternal programs in California, Texas, and North Carolina and talked about ways state, local, and private partners could fund these efforts across the United States. They found that home visitor programs improved parents connection to social services, reduced anxiety and depression for new moms, and provided a better health care plan for the families. The panelists also said that most families valued nurses over social workers and counselors as their home visitor partner. close
