PARTNER Case studies
COLORADO: Early Childhood councils
Methods. In partnership with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), the Colorado Trust, and the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), the PARTNER Team conducted a 3-year project with Early Childhood Councils (ECC) throughout the state of Colorado. The project was conducted in 12 Home Visitation (MIECHV) and Health Integration funded communities with the aim of identifying ECC network relationships, developing a map of the “ideal” system, and collecting data to assess system relationships.
A customized PARTNER survey was distributed to the participating ECC communities in April of 2013 and again in September of 2014; this survey had 394 respondents in total from all 12 communities. Each ECC had a Coordinator that was responsible for administering the survey to their collaborative members.
KIDS COUNT NETWORK EVALUATION
Million hearts initiative

Key SNA measures include network density, centralizations, value, and trust.
Results: Our analyses show a network that is decentralized, has strong perceptions of trust and value among its members, and strong agreement on intended outcomes.
