At the heart of HARC is our practice-based research network (PBRN). HARC PBRN members engage in collaborative, field-initiated studies to move home visiting forward. The PBRN is designed to bring together programs and researchers to answer the types of questions those running home visiting programs have about their own practice. Below you will find information on membership, and data summaries from the different member categories, as they are created.


HARC membership is free and open to all who have an interest in home visiting, including all staff at home visiting programs, leaders of state and local networks, model implementers, researchers, families enrolled in home visiting, and friends of HARC. To become a HARC member, you only need to fill out a short enrollment survey.
