The minimum requirement for completion is to assess the 18 critical (starred) items.

11 Stories  Optional  78 stories from 59 programs (counties and tribes)  Major story themes of families and nurses centered on: Working with Families at Risk Assisting with Basic Needs

12 Story Themes Families at Risk  Single parent  No support  Teen pregnancy, teen parents  MFIP/TANF  WIC, breastfeeding

13 Story Themes Families at Risk  Children with special health needs  Mental illness  Domestic abuse  Chemical dependency  Parent incarcerated

14 Story Themes Basic Needs  Housing  Transportation  Child Care  Employment (finding a job)  Education  Housekeeping

15 Sample.. Wadena Story  Connected family to other resources Single mother with 4 children Children with developmental delays Inadequate housing – safety issues Inadequate child care Financial and budgeting issues No work history Lack of use and knowledge of resources History of abuse and neglect History of unstable relationships

16 Sample.. Wadena Story “The parent…had many of the above issues resolved. She has adequate housing, a job, improved parenting, and is using community resources both for herself and for her children. This occurred through a partnership between the nurse and the client…(and) partnering with (other community agencies).”

17 State Highlights – What works!  Teamwork (public health nurse, parent aide, other home visitors, etc.)  Interagency collaboration (public health, social services, education, etc.) Less duplication; more supportive services for families  Partnering with job counselors and financial workers (economic assistance)

18 State Highlights – What Works!  Community outreach through social services, hospitals, WIC clinics, schools, Workforce Centers, etc.  Outreach to various racial/ethnic groups (especially tribal groups in 2002)  Training bilingual interpreters & home visitors “It was delightful to hear enthusiasm from community agencies wanting us to assist, support, teach and ultimately decrease the numbers in this target population….”

19 State Highlights & What works!  Providing services to adolescents “TANF has provided [us] with a fresh outlook on our HV program. We have purchased a new teen pregnancy/parenting curriculum and have trained staff on Partners in Parenting Education System parenting activities.”

20 State Barriers & Challenges  Completing Home Safety Checklist Mobile families; not in own home, in shelters How to introduce without being a threat  Short time frame for program start-up  New program that views “families” as “client” (billing, charting/legal, data)

21 State Barriers & Challenges  Income & citizenship validation (MFIP)  Reaching high-risk families  Staff shortages, inadequate funds  Increasing immigrants; lack of interpreters Limitations  Data only on exited families; none on enrollees!  No individual data

22 Future Challenges!  Budget deficit  Data reporting system that is ‘user friendly’ Currently have ACCESS; multiple ways to send data to MDH  Working with public health nurses on data issues (data collection & entry, QA)  Financing/reimbursement for home visits & related services: C&TC, WIC, mental health
