Public-Private Partnerships

Connecticut has a strong commitment to the well-being of the state’s youngest children and through the Department of Children and Families has supported their social and emotional well-being by investing in effective, evidence based-programs such as ECCP® through funding and partnerships across public and private sectors.

Advanced Behavioral Health, Inc. is a non-profit behavioral health care company specializing in program development, management and information systems.  ABH® developed the ECCP program and participated in three RCT Evaluations by Walter Gilliam, Ph.D. of Yale University to evaluate the program through a series of rigorous research evaluations.  ABH® and the ECCP® Management Team work in partnership with the Department of Children and Families to ensure ongoing quality assurance in the service delivery of the program model.  

The ECCP® program model has demonstrated success in collaboration and coordination across state and local agencies and service providers, to ensure a seamless delivery system and shared quality outcomes that improve the quality of life for the children, families, and caregivers served.
