2015 Pritzker Projects


In November of 2013, CCWF was awarded the Prtizker Early Childhood Education Foundation Grant that provided funds to train educators in the ICDP Program who can then go on to train caregivers using the ICDP. CCWF President Kimberly Svevo-Cianci facilitated an ICDP Facilitator Workshop on December 4th and 11th (at the Children's Home and Aid Society in Arlington Heights, IL) and on the 18th (at Cicero Family Focus in Cicero, IL) training 18 facilitators in the ICDP Program. Facilitator trainees and administrators from the four locations - Carpentersville, Cicero, Englewood, and Rogers Park - attended. 


In November of 2014, CCWF renewed their grant with Pritzker for another year. The funding will allow for new new projects in Cicero, Hermosa, Melrose Park, Englewood, Roger's Park, and Roseland/Woodlawn. These projects are have started in January 2015.
