Conceptual Framework

How AOK Networks Improve Child and Family Outcomes

AOK Networks’ Conceptual Framework provides a general theory of action that describes how AOK Networks seek to improve outcomes for babies, young children, and their families.

AOK Networks Mission: All Our Kids Early Childhood Networks are community-based collaborations that promote healthy pregnancies and the positive growth and development of all children birth to five and their parents/caregivers by assuring a well-coordinated, easily-accessible, equitable and just system of services and supports that engages parents as partners in making the system work for them.

* “Community” is used generally to refer to a geographic area, which is defined by each Network. While most Networks focus their efforts across a specific county, some focus on a specific town or area of Chicago.
