Tribal Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting
Tribal Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting

Funded by the Administration for Children and Families, the Tribal Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting (TMIECHV) was designed to bolster tribal capacity to support the health and well-being of Native American families; contribute to the tribal home visiting knowledge base; and to enhance early childhood service coordination for Native American children and their families. The Atawisamatas Parent Stress Study is a partnership between the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indians, Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center home visiting program, and the Regional Research Institute. The study was designed to examine the effects of strategically placed de-stress boosters on maternal parenting stress early in the postnatal period.
