Abstract

Early home visitation has been reported as one promising method of supporting adolescent mothers who are at risk for poor child and family outcomes. This study compared benefits of visitation for Hispanic and White non-Hispanic adolescent mothers receiving home visits during their firstborn child's first year. Although positive benefits were identified for both groups of mothers, Hispanic mothers showed greater benefit. Explanations for these differential outcomes and related implications for practice are explored.
