Since mid-March, about 670 Parents as Teachers affiliates (two-thirds of 1,000) have reported delivering 103,961 virtual visits (64,574 video-conferencing and 39,387 telecommunication).

Parents as Teachers offers a yearly parent satisfaction survey directly to about 3,500 families.

A subset of the data taken between March and May 2020 depicts the early satisfaction results from families’ experiences with virtual service delivery indicate that: 92% were satisfied with their video call visits (1,112 families responded), and 86% were satisfied with their phone call visits (753 families responded).

Parents as Teachers and the University of Southern California conducted a Virtual Home Visiting pilot from 2015–2019; a programmatic case study describes the challenges and learning from the pilot.
