Kristin and Brenden Etue of Little Heroes League join WGN Midday News anchor Dina Bair to discuss the Little Heroes League charity and to promote their inaugural #FUNraiser to be held at Soldier Field on Thursday, September 13, 2018

Program Impacts

 

100%

Early Intervention Enrollment

Early Intervention is a critical community resource that assists in maximizing the Little Hero’s physical, emotional, cognitive and social development. Our care coordinators ensure every patient is enrolled.

 
 

<1%

No-Show Rate

Program patients have an appointment no-show rate of less than 1% thanks to the coordination of multiple appointments, transportation support, and appointment assurance.

100%

Smooth Transition Home

100% of discharged families had a care coordinator present at their initial primary care provider visit. This ensures complete in-person handoff between hospital and home.
