Opening the Future. The Ounce of Prevention Fund Annual Report 1990-1991.
Brusslan, Carol, Ed.
This report describes the ways in which programs sponsored by the Ounce of Prevention Fund (OPF) are using innovative strategies to provide children and families with opportunities for health, education, and employment. A program summary lists agencies participating in OPF programs. For each agency, the summary includes a racial and ethnic description of the population served, names of programs offered, and the number of individuals served in 1990 and 1991. Several programs and services are highlighted. Operating as part of Illinois' Parents Too Soon initiative, OPF's programs provide support and information to teen parents. The Family Literacy Project helps parents promote their children's interest in writing and reading, and Career Paths for Parents gives parents a chance to explore career options. Among other services, the Center for Successful Child Development helps families cope with domestic and community violence. OPF's Toward Teen Health Division administers adolescent health centers which offer medical care to students. During the past year, OPF developed several new initiatives, prepared evaluation projects, and urged the State of Illinois to create a comprehensive service delivery system for families with young children. An itemization of OPF revenue sources and program expenses, and a listing of private financial supporters are provided. (BC)
