Project: Day One Alcona County addresses the problems of Child Protective Services (CPS) investigations for abuse/neglect, CPS removal of children for abuse/neglect, access to prenatal care, infant mortality, early intervention of health care needs of children and Safe Sleep training. In the past 2 and a half years, children in the Day One program have had early interventions through nurse assessments of autism, hearing issues, vision issues, motility/motor skills issues, developmental disabilities and more. The other challenges that need to be addressed are unemployment, under-employment, lack of family support, lack of parenting skills, substandard housing and the distances to support services inherent in rural areas. Another issue that is being addressed through an evidenced based training called Near Home, which guides home visitors to discuss the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES), trauma and toxic stress on parents' ability to effectively parent their children.
