Children’s Home & Aid had its first Best Stat meeting in March 2015. The process was developed to systematically use data to improve program performance. Over the years, Best Stat has done a great deal to promote a data-driven culture in the agency, drive innovations in practice and improve agency and client outcomes.
Quarterly Best Stat meetings create an opportunity to have an honest and constructive conversation about how to achieve the best possible results for our clients. Children’s Home & Aid has seen the impact these meetings and strategic approaches have on children, their families, and the overall community.
Each quarter of the year we will be highlighting a result from Best Stat. This quarter we are highlighting the work of Redeploy Illinois services and solutions to keeping youth from being committed to the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice.
