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.
Illinois Department of Human Services-Division of Early Childhood Home Visiting (IDHS-DEC HV) program has been invested in coordinated intake and community systems building since the inception of DEC HV.
See below for a Coordinated Intake toolkit, logic model, and reports on best practices.
A Coordinated Intake Assessment Tool (CIAT) is utilized by all Illinois DEC HV communities when recruiting participants. Non-IDHS-DEC HV programs may use it as well.
