7 Page 7 Child Care Child Care Services are available to families with income below 50 percent of the state median. Families must be working or enrolled in approved education or training activities. Families cost-share with co-payments based on income, family size and number of children in care. Services are delivered through a certificate program and a site-administered contract system. The Certificate Program eligibility is determined by resource and referral agencies. Parents choose subsidized full or part-time care from any legal care provider that meets their needs. Providers include child-care centers, family homes, group child-care home and in-home and relative care. In April 2013, an estimated 160,160 children were served by certificate. The Site-Administered Contract Program serves families through a statewide network of contracted licensed centers and family homes. Families apply for care directly with the contracted providers and eligibility is determined on-site by the provider. In April 2013 an estimated 6,291 children were served by contract. The Migrant Head Start Program provides child care and health and social services for preschool children of migrant and seasonal farm workers. Services are provided by local community based agencies. The program is federally funded and serves approximately 450 children during the harvest season. Emergency Food, Shelter and Support Homeless families and individuals receive food, shelter and support services through local not-for-profit organizations. A continuum of care includes emergency and transitional housing and assistance in gaining self-sufficiency and permanent housing. The Emergency and Transitional Housing Program served 5,488 households in shelters during October-December Of those, 1,201 were households with children. The Emergency Food Program served 767,927 households from October-December The Homeless Prevention Program helps families in existing homes and helps others secure affordable housing. During October-December 2012, 467 households were served. Of those, 298 were families (Households with children under age 18). The Supportive Housing Program funds governments and agencies which serve families and transitional facility residents. In October-December 2012, 638,153 nights of Supportive Housing were provided.

9 Page 9 Early Intervention (EI) The Illinois Early Intervention program serves Children under three years of age who are experiencing developmental delays in one or more of the following areas: cognitive development; physical development; language and speech development; psychosocial development; and self-help skills. Early Intervention is part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA Part C) which covers both Part C infants and toddlers as well as Part B Special Education. Annually Early intervention serves approximately 20,000 children across the state and maintains 25 Child and Family Connections (CFC) Offices throughout the state to handle referrals, program intake, and service coordination for children with Individual Family Service Plans (IFSP s). Early Intervention services include, but are not limited to: developmental evaluations and assessments, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, developmental therapy, service coordination, psychological services and social work services. The cost of some services are paid by the program and provided to families at no cost. These include evaluation, assessment, development of a service plan, and service coordination. Ongoing Early Intervention services are paid for by the family's health insurance, when appropriate, government insurance (Kid Care), and program funds. Families contribute to the cost of services by paying fees based on a sliding scale. Program Statistics Indicator January 2012 SFY 12 Average to Date SFY 2011 Average Referrals 3,255 2,708 2,763 Active IFSP s 18,775 18,855 18, Participation Rate 3.43% 3.45% 3.42% Under 1 Participation 1.02% 1.06% 1.10% Rate % With Medicaid 50.8% 50.7% 49.6% % With Insurance 36.3% 36.6% 36.9% % With Fees 27.9% 27.8% 27.7% What s New in Early Intervention Currently the Early Intervention program is reviewing and implementing new federal regulations that were released late This review will also involve a complete review and updating of the CFC Policies and Procedures Manual to ensure compliance with all new or modified regulations. All required revisions must be in place by July 1, 2012.
10 Page 10 Women Infants and Children (WIC) The purpose of WIC is to provide supplemental foods, nutrition education and breastfeeding promotion and support, and referral/access to health services for income eligible pregnant, postpartum, breastfeeding women, infants and children. The program has been housed under the Department of Human Services for the last 14 years. In order to be eligible, participants must be at 185% of the federal poverty level; be a resident of the State of Illinois; and must be categorically eligible (pregnant, breastfeeding postpartum, non breastfeeding postpartum, Infants (0-1), Children (1-5). Program Statistics Eligibility Category Clients in January Pregnant Women 32,429 Breastfeeding Women 16,690 Postpartum Women 18,972 Infants 76,982 Children 147,321 What s New in WIC PCS/PCE is in McLean, St. Clair, Kane, Lake Counties and the Roseland WIC Clinic in Chicago. Participant-Centered Nutrition Education (PCE) is a comprehensive, outcome-based model developed by Altarum Institute to promote the adoption of positive nutrition- and health-related behaviors by Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) families. PCE is a comprehensive systems change model for participant interaction that touches upon all aspects of WIC functions and service delivery. PCE puts the participant at the core of WIC service delivery and targets the most important determinants of behavior change: self-efficacy, skill building, and readiness to change. PCE focuses on a person s capacities, strengths and developmental needs, rather than solely on problems, risks or negative behaviors. Within the PCE framework, the participant and the WIC staff form a partnership to engage in interactive discussions based on the particular needs and circumstances of the participant. This approach contrasts with the traditional, didactic WIC assessment and education model, which places the nutrition educator in an authoritative position, providing information and direction to the participant. Although the didactic approach is somewhat successful in delivering information and increasing nutrition knowledge, it is less effective at promoting real behavior change.
11 Page 11 Family Case Management The program target population is low income families (below 200% of the federal poverty level) with a pregnant woman, an infant or a child with a high-risk condition. The goals of the program are to help women have healthy babies and to reduce the rates of infant mortality and very low birth weight. To achieve these goals the program conducts outreach activities to inform expectant women and new mothers of available services and then assists them with obtaining prenatal and well-child care. The program works with community agencies to address barriers to accessing medical services, such as child care, transportation, housing, food, mental health needs and substance abuse services. Services are provided statewide through local health departments, federally qualified health centers and community-based organizations. Home visits by a public health nurse are provided to the families of infants with medical problems. Program Statistics FCM Active Participant Counts for January, 2012 Location Category Medicaid Non-Medicaid Cook County Children 10,920 2,573 Infants 23,257 2,655 Pregnant 12,052 1,342 Downstate Children 18,343 2,581 Infants 39,600 3,256 Pregnant 20,747 1,509 Statewide Children 29,263 5,154 Infants 62,857 5,911 Pregnant 32,799 2,851 Program Accomplishments Family Case Management has contributed to the overall reduction in the state's infant mortality and has reduced expenditures for medical assistance during the first year of life. Program outcomes are more effective in the integrated system of Family Case Management and WIC. Recent statistics show: The infant mortality rate is 50 to 70% lower The rate of premature birth is 60 to 70% lower Medicaid expenditures for health care in the first year of life are up to 50% lower Participation in WIC and FCM saves Illinois an average of $200 million each year in Medicaid expenses Bureau of Program & Performance Management June 2013
