6 DFSS PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS 3 OFFICE OF CHILDREN AND YOUTH SERVICES CHILDREN S PROGRAMS Early Head Start Provides educational and early childhood development activities that promote school readiness for birth to three year old children from low income families. It includes free medical, dental and mental health services, and nutritious meals, as well as parent education and training. There is no cost for Early Head Start programs. Head Start Provides educational and early childhood development activities that promote school readiness for three to five year old children from low income families. It includes free medical, dental and mental health services, and nutritious meals, as well as parent education and training. Agencies can offer full-day, half-day, and home based programs. There is no cost for Head Start programs. Child Care Provides low-income families with access to quality, affordable child care that allows them to continue to work or participate in approved training programs and contributes to the healthy, emotional and social development of the child. Funded through the Child Care Assistance Program of the Illinois Department of Human Services. Eligibility is based on income, and the program serves children from birth to age 12. Families are required to cost-share on a sliding scale based on family size, income and number of children in care. The types of child care offered depend on the age of the child. These are: o Infant Toddler (IT) Operates full day, full year, and serves children from birth to three from low-income, eligible families with access to quality, affordable child care that allows them to continue to work or participate in approved training programs and contributes to the healthy, emotional and social development of the child. o Infant Preschool (IP) Operates full day, full year, and serves children from two through three from low-income, working families with access to quality, affordable child care that allows them to continue working and contributes to the healthy, emotional and social development of the child. This also allows the child to remain in a licensed quality child care program before transitioning into a preschool program. o Preschool (PS) Operates full day, full year, serving three-to-five year old children from low income families with access to quality, affordable child care that allows them to continue to working and contributes to the healthy, emotional and social development of the child.

7 o Home Care (HC) Operates full day, full year, serving three-to-five year old children from low-income, working families with access to quality, affordable child care in a home setting that allows them to continue employment and contributes to the healthy, emotional and social development of the child. 4 o School Age (SA) Operates part-day during the school year and full day during the summer, or when school is not in session, including afternoons, holidays and during public and private school breaks, serving six to twelve year old children from low-income, working families with access to quality, affordable child care that allows them to continue employment and contributes to the healthy, emotional and social development of the child. These programs also provide homework support and nutritious snacks or meals. Collaboration In these programs, different funding sources may be blended to allow the service provider to extend the hours of care beyond what a single funding source will support. Families may co-pay a portion of the cost on a sliding scale based on family size, income and number of children in care and the requirements of the different funding sources. For example, a service provider agency may combine Head Start and other funding sources, such as state Child Care or Preschool for All funds, to extend the day and meet a wide range of comprehensive and individualized services for children. Collaboration programs generally serve children in the birth-to-five year old range. Summer Nutrition The Summer Nutrition Program is part of a nationwide effort to ensure that low-income children receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. DFSS is one of the city s sponsors of the Summer Nutrition Program with funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture through the Illinois State Board of Education. Eligible non-profit organizations (including faithbased) that apply can provide low-income youth 18 years and under with free nutritious lunches and snacks at their site(s). There are two types of summer nutrition sites: A Closed site is one at which only those youth enrolled in the organization s programs and activities, for example, a summer camp, receive the meals; an Open site serves meals to any low-income child in its neighborhood who comes in, with no enrollment required. Early Childhood Program Locator At the Chicago Early Childhood Program Locator website (www.earlychildhoodchicago.org), families can find quality care and education options that match their needs in a listing of hundreds of early childhood education programs throughout the city. Users can learn about different program types, including locations, hours, fees and services. Typing in any Chicago address will allow users to identify nearby childcare and early childhood education programs.

11 OFFICE OF HUMAN SERVICES 8 HUMAN SERVICE DELIVERY Community Service Centers DFSS six Community Service Centers are open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and on Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. City residents who need assistance can drop in or schedule an appointment in advance. Community Service Centers help individuals and families in need access a wide range of resources from shelter, food and clothing to domestic violence assistance, drug rehab, job training and prisoner re-entry. Clients can get information about rental, utility and other financial assistance programs. The facilities serve as Warming and Cooling Centers during periods of extreme weather. Visitors participate in an initial assessment to identify their needs. Some basic services can be provided immediately. Clients with multiple or complex issues are assigned a case manager. Case managers are trained specialists who work with clients on-going. They help individuals set personal goals and develop plans to achieve them. A case manager can refer clients to specialized services in the community. Emergency Food Boxes Low-income families who suffer a sudden financial setback may find themselves without enough to eat. Free emergency food boxes for individuals and families are available at DFSS centers. Clients must present proof of income and explain their emergency needs. People with disabilities or those unable to travel to a Community Service Center, can request delivery of a food box. Food boxes serve as a one-time, intervention measure. Case managers work with families to help them secure daily, stable nutrition. Infant Formula Families can obtain free infant formula at Community Service Centers. The amount of formula and period of eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis. Domestic Violence Victims of domestic violence can access services to help them regain a safe, stable lifestyle and prevent abuse from occurring. Domestic violence counselors are on site at five Community Service Centers; Garfield, King, Englewood, Trina Davila and North Area. The City of Chicago Domestic Violence Help Line ( ) is a toll free, confidential, multi-lingual 24 hour clearinghouse for referral assistance for victims of domestic violence. The Help Line provides victims with immediate information about their options, and directs victims to community based service providers including shelters, counseling, legal advocacy and civil legal services.

12 Rental Assistance Emergency Rental Assistance is available for people suffering financial hardship due to a crisis such as loss of job, home fire or illness. The program is intended to allow families to maintain housing during the time it takes to regain stability. Eligible clients must demonstrate that moving forward they will have sufficient income to cover rent and other living expenses. Emergency Rental Assistance offers a one-time grant up to $900 to cover one month s rent. Applications can be filed at the City s six Community Service Centers. Weather Relief Warming Centers are heated facilities where any resident can go during periods of extreme cold temperatures to stay warm and safe. Likewise, Cooling Centers offer residents air-conditioned refuge from oppressive summer heat. Agencies that volunteer their facilities as Warming and Cooling Centers, work to make visitors comfortable. While these centers are meant for short-term, daytime use, many are prepared to expand hours during weather emergencies. The City's Warming/Cooling Center at 10 S. Kedzie stays open 24 hours. The Chicago Department of Family and Support Services coordinates the operation of Cooling and Warming Centers. Beginning with its own Community Service Centers, DFSS works with Senior Services, Chicago Park District, Chicago Public Schools and Chicago Public Libraries to make public buildings available. In times of excessive need, the City enlists the help of community organizations that can open their facilities to the public for respite from the weather. Families First Families First operates through The Chicago Low-Income Housing Trust Fund. The program provides permanent housing and support services to homeless families residing in shelters. DFSS selects families with high potential to achieve selfsufficiency. DFSS provides on-going case management to ensure they receive the support they need to maintain their housing and become fully independent. Case Management A case manager is a skilled professional trained to help individuals work through their issues and improve their quality of life. Many case managers have advanced degrees in social work. A case manager has an on-going relationship with the client. He or she wears many hats i.e., counselor, coach and resource coordinator. Case managers work out of six Community Service Centers and the Emergency Response Center. DFSS also funds private agencies to provide case management. Case managers begin by making a thorough assessment of their client s needs. They work with the individual to set personal goals and develop a plan to realize those goals. 9

15 EMERGENCY SERVICES Emergency Response DFSS Emergency Response Teams are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist with non-life threatening situations Call for shelter, food, relocation, and social services in situations that do not pose an immediate life threat Call for police, medical and fire emergencies that present an immediate threat to life. Well-Being Checks Teams make home visits to check on someone when there is reason for concern and a family member or friend is not able to get to them. Trained outreach workers conduct well-being checks. When they arrive at the home they make an initial assessment of the situation. They evaluate housing conditions, safety hazards, health and abuse issues and other potential problems. If necessary, DFSS workers call in other social services or medical professionals. Requests for well-being checks peak during periods of severe winter or summer weather. HOMELESS SERVICES Shelter Requests Outreach teams respond to shelter requests around the clock. If the need is immediate, the caller may be asked to go to their local police station or hospital emergency room where they can wait safely for the team. DFSS workers conduct an initial assessment and find appropriate, temporary shelter for the individual or family. DFSS follows up with the client to get them into permanent, supportive housing as quickly as possible. Homeless Outreach and Engagement The first step in housing homeless people is to engage them in the process. For most that is easy, they are anxious to regain the stability of permanent housing. But for others who have a history of life on the streets or making the rounds of shelters, engagement can be a challenge. DFSS conducts a variety of outreach activities. Homeless Prevention Call Center (HPCC) Any Chicago resident threatened with homelessness due to a recent crisis can call 311 City Services anytime and say Short Term Help to get connected to the HPCC. Information and Referral (I&R) Specialists at the center are available weekdays, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. HPCC assess each caller's situation to determine potential eligibility. Eligible callers are referred to agencies that make final funding disbursements. A caller may be eligible for financial assistance for rent, mortgage, utility payments or first month s rent and security deposit. 12

16 Mobile Clinics The city s two mobile clinics make services readily accessible to homeless people. They bring a full range of medical and social services directly to the individual. Social Services: Counseling and Case Management Housing Job Training / Placement Substance Abuse Recovery Medical Services: Primary Care Services Health Prevention and Maintenance Services Blood Test Immunization The clinics are staffed by a certified nurse practitioner from the Chicago Department of Public Health and a social worker from DFSS. In addition to providing direct service, they offer a conduit to long-term health, housing and support services. The mobile clinics also travel the city and locate homeless people in parks, viaducts, soup kitchens, shelters and anywhere homeless people gather. Street Outreach Teams conduct year-round outreach to homeless people in various areas of the city. Over time, through repeated dialog, outreach workers gain the trust of their street clients and are able to guide them into programs. During periods of extreme winter weather, additional teams are assigned. An aggressive effort is launched to convince homeless people on the street to spend the night in a warm shelter. Service Events Throughout the year, DFSS coordinates outreach events that bring a number of service providers together in a location convenient for homeless people. Organizations set up booths and have staff available to talk to people about their services. Fifteen to twenty organizations participate offering programs such as detox, health care, job training and placement, housing services, veteran s affairs, state IDs and more. DFSS provides transportation for anyone who decides to take immediate advantage of available services. On average, each event draws more than 100 homeless clients. Interim Housing Individuals and families who find themselves homeless are placed in Interim Housing for a period up to four months. During this time they work closely with a case manager who helps them connect with services they need to gain stability, locate permanent housing and ensure they have the means to retain that housing. As part of Chicago's Plan To End Homelessness, DFSS has funded 37 Interim Housing Programs across the city. 13
