In 2018, the Division of Children and Family Services at the Department of Human Services and the Arkansas Home Visiting Network launched SafeCare. In addition to improving risk and safety assessment and management, this program is designed to protect children in their homes and prevent their entry into foster care. During weekly visits for up to 18 weeks, home visitors work with parents of children ages five and under to improve parenting skills and create a safe and nurturing home environment. They focus on fostering positive parent-infant/child interactions, home safety, and child health care. SafeCare began as a pilot and is now operating statewide and served 667 children in 2020.
