Neighborhood Partnerships

Neighborhood Partnerships

Illinois Action for Children's Neighborhood Partnerships deepen and expand families' relationships with child care providers, local service providers, faith-based connections, businesses, and communities.

Faith-Based Program

Our Faith-Based Program connects parents and child care providers to early learning and school-age programs and services by partnering with churches to educate parishioners and communities on the importance of quality care and education.

Hospitals Program

We connect with hospitals, health care centers, and family planning agencies to educate them about early care and education and the family services that we offer.

Community Network Resource Collaborative

Community Network Resource Collaborative is a collection of agencies and organizations that serve families throughout Cook County and surrounding areas. The overall goal of the collaborative is to connect families to early childhood resources and supports and to minimize barriers that they face in connecting with an early learning program. The collaborative meets quarterly and provides the opportunity for community partners to connect with one another and to learn about and advocate for policy issues impacting families and other timely matters.
