Family Connects Program
Managed by Department of Public HealthData last updated on Aug 23, 2023
Chicago Recovery Plan funding is supporting citywide expansion of in-home nurse visits and connection to a system of community resources to improve health outcomes of newborns and their families.
Family Connects Chicago is an evidence-based program that combines coordination of community service providers with short-term nurse home visiting for all birthing persons, newborns, and their families. The home visit includes a comprehensive physical assessment for the birthing person and infant, and connection to resources tailored to the family's needs. It is a voluntary program that is provided at no cost to families. Community members and service providers are engaged through six regional boards to identify and build community level supports to meet the needs identified by families.
Data reflects families served by participating hospitals at the time of reporting. Activities shown below are reported separately by funding source. Data reflects families served from the beginning of project scaling.
