Healthy Families Parenting Inventory (HFPI)

The Healthy Families Parenting Inventory (HFPI) is a valid and reliable outcome measure that was designed to examine change in nine parenting domains: Social Support, Problem-Solving, Depression, Personal Care, Mobilizing Resources, Role Satisfaction, Parent/child Interaction, Home Environment and Parenting Efficacy. The HFPI was developed by LeCroy & Milligan Associates in 2004, to respond to the need for an outcome measure for home visitation programs that is relevant to the intervention, sensitive to change, appropriate with a diverse participant base, and would produce data that are immediately useful in practice. The HFPI is widely used across the United States and internationally in home visitation, early childhood intervention and family support programs.  For articles about the HFPI, click here.
