Illinois Children's Healthcare Foundation Grant
The Illinois Children's Healthcare Foundation (ILCHF) has a single vision: to ensure every child in Illinois has the opportunity to grow up healthy. Working through grantee partners across the state, the Foundation focuses its grant making on identifying and funding solutions to the barriers that prevent children from accessing the ongoing health care they need.
The Southern Illinois Coalition for Children and Families has been awarded a grant from the Foundation for activities beginning January 1, 2016. Grant funds will be utilized to expand the Coalition's work in developing a regional comprehensive developmental screening initiative designed to increase the number of early learning programs, professionals and agencies that administer screening. In addition, grant funds will be used to deepen the involvement and coordinate screening efforts with the southern Illinois medical community.
By establishing a region-wide system of developmental surveillance and screenings, professionals will be able to better detect developmental delays and connect children with desired interventions and/or treatments to improve child outcomes.
