2020 has been anything but typical! Throughout the year, we have all faced uncertainty and unrest. It has never been more important to celebrate home visiting and to share our appreciation for all the hard work home visiting staff and programs have put in this year. Home visitors have been committed to being a positive force in the lives of their families to provide endless support and resources when it has been most needed. Your creativeness, adaptability, and commitment has not gone unnoticed! It has taken compassion, courage, and flexibility to maintain the high level of quality services home visitors provide and home visitors across the state have stepped up and answered the call! While we are sad that we are not able to celebrate and recognize everyone in person, we hope you enjoy this appreciation video and celebration page made just for you!
