DuPage Children’s Museum Leadership Takes Action After Reading Risk and Reach Report

A recent Chicago Tribune article reports that the DuPage Children’s Museum is expanding and reframing programming in response to the Illinois Risk and Reach Report released this spring by the Erikson Institute in collaboration with the Illinois Early Childhood Asset Map at the University of Illinois (IECAM) and the Fiscal Policy Center at Voices for Illinois Children.

The museum will now offer expanded information social service vendors on days with more attendance in order to serve the community, which includes neighboring counties with higher risk factors such as poverty, child care costs and kindergarten readiness.

The museum’s response to the “Risk and Reach” report is an example of how the data included in this report is making an impact for Illinois children.
