Columbus Kids & Franklin County Kids Report
Thoughtwell worked with United Way of Central Ohio to complete an initial evaluation of their re-modelled Columbus Kids program. The original Columbus Kids model worked with over 300 local partners between 2010 to 2015 with the goal of screening all children in Franklin County between the ages of 2.5 and 4 years old, and to refer for services where necessary. The new model, CK2, was developed with a more holistic approach, opening ‘pathways’ to provide services to both children and their families within UWCO’s Care Coordination Network. Thoughtwell analyzed data provided by UWCO to summarize trends visible at an early stage of the program.
