Engaging the Community

 

For the past 30 years, the Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County has been tracking a series of child and family data indicators to assist in strategic planning and funding decisions that address the needs of local children and families. While there has been demonstrated success in developing positive trends in those indicators, the Children’s Services Council is looking to engage directly with St. Lucie County residents about the needs of children and families in the community.  

In 2019, the Children’s Services Council conducted a community survey and received resident feedback on its funding priorities. The Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County is looking to conduct another valid community survey that will serve as a tool to help the agency in strategic planning by asking residents what children’s issues are most important; identifying the various ways residents find services; and assessing the agency’s current funding priorities. The Children’s Services Council will use the results of this community survey to complement the past survey and continue to build a baseline for future resident input.

Analysis of Low Utilization Rates in System of Care of Ensuring Every Baby is a Healthy Baby 


One of the Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County’s priorities is ensuring every baby is a healthy baby. The Children’s Services Council has created a system of care through its network of funded programs for all newborns in the county. In reviewing the historical utilization data of this system of care, the Children’s Services Council has determined that not all hospitals are providing home nurse visits at the same rate. 

Additionally, the Children’s Services Council has identified a drop off in utilization from the families receiving the newborn home visit to those that accept and receive the B.R.A.I.N. visit. Therefore, the Children’s Services Council is looking to conduct an analysis of this  system of care to identify reasons for low utilization rates and the subsequent referrals to the B.R.A.I.N. program with recommendations on how to increase utilization of both programs.
