April 9, 2013: The signing ceremony for Act 528, "An Act to Improve the Health and Stability of Arkansas Families and to Strengthen Voluntary Home Visitation Programs." Voluntary home visiting programs match parents with trained professionals to provide information and support during pregnancy and throughout the child's first few (and very formative) years. This is a big win for Arkansas kids and families!
