Healthy Steps for Young Children Program Support for Program Direction and Operations, 2002-03


The Healthy Steps for Young Children Program was initiated in 1994 to demonstrate and evaluate an alternative model of pediatric practice designed to improve the quality of developmental services for young children and their families. In addition to the original 24 clinical sites, of which 11 continue to operate, 18 other sites have adopted the Healthy Steps approach to care. Since this is intended to be the final year of Fund support for the National Program Office at ICF, activities in the coming year will focus on devising and implementing a sustainability plan. That plan will allow the Fund to continue some administrative support for the network of local funders that has evolved during the course of this program until 2005, and enable the Fund to field inquiries about Healthy Steps from clinical sites, organizations, and the media. The National Program Office will also convene the final meeting of the National Advisory Committee; organize this year's meeting of the Local Funders Network; work closely with Johns Hopkins University on the completion of evaluation analyses; and continue to provide logistical and communications support to the Healthy Steps offices, sites, and funding partners.
