Child Care Resource and Referral at John A. Logan College Back to JALC

Coalition for Children & Families


The work of the Coalition is divided into four targeted areas:

These include: Early Education, Strong Families, Children’s Health and Engaged, Caring and Supportive Communities


Many of the goals of the Coalition are accomplished through the work of existing programs, businesses, agencies and other groups throughout the fifteen county region.

The Coalition works to strengthen this work through initiatives that:

  • Promote advocacy and support
  • Provide ongoing education
  • Facilitate communication and networking and
  • Connect and coordinate regional efforts.
