InCK Marks Resource Network and Help Me Grow:
ADVANCING THE INTEGRATED CARE FOR KIDS (INCK) MODEL
About the InCK Marks Resource Network
InCK Marks developed under funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Perigee Fund to provide resources and supports to child health advocates and experts, practitioner champions, community leaders, state administrators, and policy makers regarding the InCK Model.
The Help Me Grow National Center joins numerous other partners in this network to collectively advance the InCK Model. Our role at the National Center is to provide guidance to the Help Me Grow Affiliate Network to leverage this opportunity within states. Below you will find resources and webinars to help guide your state in this opportunity.
Children, youth, and families throughout the country are experiencing hardship like never before as the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic disrupt processes that provide essential supports to our nation’s youth. Nemours Children’s Health System, Mental Health America, First Focus on Children, The Education Redesign Lab at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, and the Forum for Youth Investment have led an initiative that calls upon the incoming Biden-Harris Administration for the establishment of a White House Office on Children and Youth alongside a Federal Children’s Cabinet. Federal leadership will advance the needs of children, youth, and their families and ultimately set our country on a trajectory of strengthening systems and creating prosperous futures for our nation’s children.
Alongside 350 organizations and leaders, the Help Me Grow National Center has signed on to a letter in support of a National Strategy for Children and Youth and a Children’s Budget.
