Coordinated Intake (CI) is a collaborative process that provides families with a single point of entry for home visiting programs within a community. Trained Coordinated Intake workers serve as a hub for home visiting, assessing families’ needs, referring them to an appropriate home visiting program, and tracking what happens to the referrals.
The Governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development (OECD) is looking for communities which are interested in developing their own early childhood/home visiting coordinated intake system. To learn more contact Bryce Marable.
