Guidelines and Standards

These Guidelines for Home Visitation Programs were developed by the Alberta Ministry of Children’s Services in consultation with the province’s Child and Family Services Authorities and representatives of the Alberta Home Visitation Network Association (AHVNA).

The guidelines apply to home visitation programs funded by Alberta Children’s Services. They are designed to

  •   interpret relevant legislation as it applies to home visitation programs
  •   outline best practices, set quality standards and define expectations with regard to the development, delivery, monitoring and evaluation of home visitation programs
  •   communicate program-related policy to stakeholders who deliver home visitation services
  •   improve the contract management practices, administration and delivery methods of home visitation programs
  •   support Alberta’s Child and Family Services Authorities in their role as contract managers of home visitation programs
  •   improve the quality of services delivered to program clients
