The resources provided here are meant for anyone who does home visits as part of their professional position. When utilizing resources provided here it is important to remember the context in which they will be used. Safety considerations may vary from location to location as well as from situation to situation. For example, safety issues in rural areas may differ somewhat from safety issued in urban areas. Because each community is unique, the safety issues encountered in that community may also be unique. With regard to safety issues, there are other factors, in addition to context, that may need to be considered. Those factors include agency policies and procedures as well as current state laws. A comprehensive set of safety measures will allow staff to be more effective in their work with families.
The link below highlights research, policies, and position statements (Why Do It?), videos and DVDs (See for Yourself), and Web resources (Find It Online) to support those efforts. Featured resources are high-quality, readily available, and no-cost or low-cost. A special Wisconsin section features Web sites, organizations, and other state-specific resources.
