Angiollo, Dominic, Comp.; Casas, Paula, Comp.; Kirwan, Ann, Comp.
This report provides a comprehensive listing of state and federal investments in Illinois' efforts to improve the quality of life for expecting parents and children under age three and their families. The inventory profiles a wide range of initiatives and is designed to serve as a resource for local program directors, community members, administrators, and other partners. Following a quick reference guide providing an overview of 37 publicly funded programs, the report presents detailed profiles of the following types of efforts: (1) program and services provided to pregnant women and children birth to three years; (2) systems development initiatives coordinating services and producing policy or broad-level systems change to improve the quality and availability of services and access to services; and (3) public education campaigns to increase public awareness of important issues related to the health and well-being of children from birth to age three. For each program or service, the profile includes a description of the program goals, key services, the administering agency, budget, and eligibility criteria; these profiles also list program capacity, geographic areas served, outreach/identification methods, staff education or training requirements, and key indicators used to measure outcomes. The profiles for systems development initiatives include the program mission and goals, key activities, administering agency, local agency, target population, geographic areas covered, organizational structure and process, partners and participants, and year initiated. The public education campaign profiles include a program description and purpose, key messages, administering agency, budget, target audience, geographic areas served, program capacity, outreach/distribution methods, and indicators of campaign success.
