The Consortium is dedicated to improving the coordination of home visiting services in the state’s early childhood system.
The Consortium is tasked with advising OEC, the Department of Children and Families, the Department of Developmental Services, and the Department of Education about the implementation of the recommendations for the coordination of home visitation programs within the early childhood system. It was created by Public Act 15-45.
The Consortium includes a variety of viewpoints — from parents to professionals. See a list of our members.
Consortium members include the following agencies and organizations:
- Birth to Three
