Facilitate the development and implementation of a strategic plan that will raise the Early Childhood QLI by 10% within five years, in all zip codes where the QLI is below the County’s overall score of 41.67%.
This goal of the SmartBabies Initiative brings together knowledgeable stakeholders to explore how our community can improve quality of life. Since November 2011, the SmartBabies Steering Committee has convened and recommended the convening of other practitioners that are specifically focused on the three focus areas of prenatal care, home visiting and teen pregnancy prevention.
- Each Subcommittee has served as a workgroup with the purpose of understanding our current challenges around each of the focus areas and making recommendations regarding next steps. Each group has assisted in narrowing the scope of the strategic plan to improve children’s lives.
