Annual Report

In fiscal year 2017, we served more than 18,300 families across Illinois.

The FY 2017 UIC Division of Specialized Care for Children Annual Report features a photo of an African American boy sitting and smiling with his big sister holding him closely next to her. Fiscal year 2017 marked a milestone for the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC). We celebrated 80 years as the state’s designated organization to serve children and youth with special healthcare needs.

We are proud to be a leader in providing care coordination as part of our overall mission to partner, help and connect children and families to the proper services. During FY 2017, we updated DSCC’s vision statement to reaffirm our focus on the child and family. We believe that children and youth with special healthcare needs should be at the center of a seamless support system that improves the quality of their lives.

As you read through this report, you’ll learn more about how we are working to achieve that vision and the progress we’ve made. Click below to learn more.
