Our school and child care walkthrough programs, as well as our anti-idling pilot, positively impacted approximately 2,500 children where they learn and play.
Grief and Bereavement
Connected 45 new families
to grief support and resources.
Infant Death Center of Wisconsin
The Infant Death Center (IDC) was created more than 40 years ago serving as a resource for families and professionals. In January 2023, a new agency will begin providing these services to families.
The Alliance has been honored to provide these important resources to families and will continue to work in other areas to improve: child health outcomes, health equity and access to quality services. Thank you for your ongoing partnership and dedication to this important initiative.
A special thank you to our donors for their generous support.
Injury Prevention and Death Review
The Alliance has collaborated with Medical College of Wisconsin on fatality review legislation. Legislation would codify fatality review practices into state statute to ensure consistency and clarity across the state to support local teams.
Trained 220 Individuals
Trainings help professionals learn the latest tools and resources to maintain effective review teams.
Approximately 600 clinical and public health professionals were trained to use the Ages and Stages Questionnaire Third Edition (ASQ-3) – a screening tool designed to identify developmental concerns.
A special thank you to our students, interns and AmeriCorps members for helping us serve children and families statewide.
