Community Vision Council

Sponsored by United Way Services, the Cleveland Community Vision Council, Strong Families=Successful Children, serves in a planning and advisory role to the County Commissioners to evaluate needs and develop initiatives to improve the lives of children and families in the Greater Cleveland area. In a white paper titled, “A Vision for the Future of Children in Greater Cleveland,” the Vision Council identified six indicators of children's health and six goals to improve their health status. Working with the Vision Council, CSHS will help achieve improvement in the key indicators with initial focus on increasing the percent of children who have completed their 4:3:1 immunization series at age 2 from 53 percent to 90 percent in the City of Cleveland and from 81 percent to 95 percent in the Cuyahoga County suburbs.
