Resources for Home Visitors
Improve Cultural Responsiveness in your Home Visiting Program with FaCET
The Family and Community Engagement Tools (FaCET) survey process for home visiting promotes and measures family engagement with questions that reflect the values families care most about.
This tool was developed by Wilder Research and Betty Emarita of Development & Training, Inc. This survey process consists of a parent survey, a staff survey, and a facilitated conversation between parents and staff about the survey results. FaCET provides unique information not available in other assessments that can help you improve programs, policies, and practices—especially for low-income families and families of color.
You will get practical information that will:
Engage families authentically.
Show what families most appreciate and where improvements can be targeted.
Help you understand and better use the strengths of your home visiting team.
Document what you are already doing well.
