Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHEV) Program

DeKalb County receives funding through the Georgia Department of Health & Human Services and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services to implement the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHEV) Program (also known as Great Start Georgia).

At its heart, Great Start Georgia creates a community culture of caring, encouragement, and support for all families before and after the birth of a child. It is first and foremost a vision for how communities should make available natural supports for all expectant families. The program supports children from birth through age five years by providing basic parenting information and resources to parents. The program also provides referrals to families for more intensive services as needed.
