Improving the Family Experience

ELM is improving the family experience across early childhood services. We address gaps by dedicating funds to targeted initiatives and monitoring their progress. Here are three examples:

Home Visiting Referral Network
ELM is working with a multi-sector home visiting network to close gaps and simplify the way families experience referrals to services across sectors.

Developmental Screening
ELM and its partners are improving the developmental screening process to get the right support and training to more families of children with developmental delays and disabilities.

Targeted SUN Investments
Research supported by ELM and the SUN Service System shows 6 out of 10 low- income children six and under in Multnomah County are children of color. This data drove the reallocation of SUN funds as well as ELM’s focus on serving children of color.
