Assuring Better Child Health and Development (ABCD)
Assuring Better Child Health and Development (ABCD), a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center, is a statewide nonprofit focused on improving the lives of Colorado children through early identification of developmental needs. We bring the lifelong benefits of early identification and intervention to Colorado children by strengthening the primary care, early childhood and community agencies that serve them.
As one of our core programs, ABCD is the designated Colorado State Intermediary for HealthySteps®. HealthySteps (HS) is an evidence-based approach to providing developmental support, behavioral health, and resources to young children (0-3 years) during well-child health-care visits. As the State Intermediary, ABCD supports the financial sustainability of HS sites, monitors model fidelity, provides professional development to HS specialists, maintains and reports HS data, liaises between Colorado HS sites and the national office (ZERO TO THREE), and plays a crucial role in expanding HS in Colorado.
ABCD models inclusiveness by promoting equity through our work and openness in our team. All our programs and projects work toward equitable access to developmental supports for all Colorado’s young children. As a team, we value intentionality, open dialogue, trusting relationships, and collaboration. We care deeply about our work and show that passion through high quality work products. We are looking for a teammate who shares these values and is excited to grow with us.
