About PCHP

For over 50 years, PCHP has been helping families prepare their children for school success through intensive home visiting. This evidenced-based early literacy, parenting, and school readiness model addresses the achievement gap head-on, building language, social-emotional, and numeracy skills. By reaching under-resourced families before their children enter school, PCHP provides them with the knowledge skills, and tools they need to build school readiness where it begins, the home. PCHP is currently working with 115 local partner agencies reaching 400 communities across 14 states.
