Colorado Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems: Health Integration Prenatal-to-three Program

The Colorado Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems: Health Integration Prenatal-to-three Program (CO-ECCS) is advancing the infrastructure, capacity, equity and sustainability of Colorado’s maternal and early childhood systems of care to achieve the vision that “All children are valued, healthy and thriving and have equal access to services, supports and resources” in Colorado.

Ensuring Successful Implementation

Illuminate Colorado, together with the Colorado Health Institute, is working collaboratively with key partners and agencies comprising Colorado’s infrastructure for the delivery and coordination of prenatal-to-three (P-3) services to ensure the successful implementation of the CO-ECCS goals and activities.

Background About Funding

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA ), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, awarded approximately $5.1 million through 20 cooperative agreements to states and non-profit organizations to support the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Health Integration Prenatal-to-Three (ECCS) Program.

These funds will advance cross-sector collaborations and partnerships, health system improvements, state-level policy and fiscal innovation, equity, and family leadership to promote early developmental health and family well-being among prenatal to three-year-old (P-3) populations. 

Colorado is among the 20 grantees awarded funds through the ECCS Program to build state capacity and infrastructure to integrate and strengthen maternal and early childhood systems.

Its particular focus on the prenatal-to-age-3 period maximizes the opportunity to reach and support families during the earliest stages of parenting. The grant, awarded to the Colorado Department of Human Services Office of Early Childhood provides $255,600 annually for five years (2021-2026) to implement projects that will advance Colorado’s maternal and early childhood systems of care and help Colorado achieve the vision that “All children are valued, healthy and thriving and have equal access to services, supports and resources.”

 

Guiding the Work In Colorado
To guide the implementation of the Colorado Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Grant: Health Integration Prenatal-to-three Program (CO-ECCS), the Early Childhood Leadership Commission (ECLC), Colorado’s federally- authorized state advisory council for early childhood, approved the formation of the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Working Group on December 16, 2021 and subject to annual review and reauthorization.

Meetings & Events

Meetings of the ECCS Working group are currently being scheduled and various CO-ECCS Goal Implementation groups may be formed. Click HERE to view the entire ECCS Calendar.

Over the past decade, hundreds of partners and more than 5,000 families have informed the advancement of Colorado’s early childhood and maternal child health systems.

The [Colorado Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems: Health Integration Prenatal-to-three Program] will build upon Colorado’s foundation to implement innovative and creative approaches that cut across federal, state, and local systems and services, which will result in an equitable and comprehensive P-3 system.

The project will also strengthen the state infrastructure and capacity to serve children and families P-3 by integrating and aligning health services so that families are able to receive a full continuum of support during the most critical times in their child’s life.

Example Post: The ABC’s of safe sleep are simple and easy! Babies should be Alone, on their Backs, and in a Crib.

You don’t need any fancy equipment to make sure a baby is sleeping safely–just a firm, flat surface, separate from adults or others, and without any bumpers, soft bedding, or stuffed toys.

Suggested Post Date: October 16

Example Post: Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) is heartbreaking. SUID describes deaths of infants under age 1 that occur suddenly and unexpectedly, whether explained or unexplained. 

These deaths often occur during sleep, so it is important to take every precaution to ensure every baby, everywhere sleeps safely.

Example Post: Inequities in areas like food security, education, job opportunities, income, clean air and water, safe housing, and transportation are associated with increased infant mortality rates. Due to racist and discriminatory policies and practices, some families experience these community inequities more than others, which leads to significant disparities in infant mortality rates.

Example Post: During my 30 years serving children and families, I have developed a deep appreciation and understanding of community prevention efforts to reduce child abuse. Child sexual abuse is among the most egregious events that can happen to a child, and the report released today by Illuminate Colorado provides new insights into what we all can do to help prevent such tragedies. The Office of Colorado’s Child Protection Ombudsman is appreciative of the information gathered by Illuminate and supports their recommendation of investing in strategies that can build strong community awareness around this issue.” –Child Protection Ombudsman of Colorado Stephanie Villafuerte

Example Post: This generation of Coloradans can protect the next by educating themselves on how to create safer communities where everyone is actively thinking about how to prevent children from being sexually abused. We need to give all Coloradans the skills they need to protect children and create communities where children have the opportunity to grow up healthy, happy and safe.

Example Post: Across Colorado, and in our own backyards, child sexual abuse is a major public health concern which must be addressed as a core element of child safety and family well-being. Ultimately, building awareness, knowledge, skills, and confidence with adults, who are supported by communities, systems, and policies to create safe environments leverages the best of the evidence and expertise available in the prevention of child sexual abuse.

Example Post: Each one of us has a collective responsibility to work together to shift social norms, promote training and encourage practice transformation to prevent child sexual abuse in Colorado. This is an opportunity to put the responsibility back where it belongs, with adults, and give all Coloradans the skills they need to protect children and create communities where children have the opportunity to grow up healthy, happy and safe.
