The ALPI Resource & Referral Program has been playing
a major role in the development and improvement of quality
childcare. Services offered under this initiative program
include technical assistance, financial assistance, resource
van visits, Toy Lending Library,Resource Lending Library and
support for childcare providers.
Child Development Services include case management services
to those families receiving childcare in the subsidized
childcare program. Case management plans are developed
with families to secure needed services and handle family
situations as identified through the Family Needs Assessment
Process. Special emphasis is given to families referred
from the Children and Family Child Protection unit. The
"Safety Net" case management process documents
these families and coordinates activities.
