Bill Byrnes, Ph.D., KIDS COUNT Project Manager

Voices for Illinois Children, Powered by YWCA Metropolitan Chicago (henceforth Voices) is an independent advocacy organization that champions strong public policies and investments for all children in our state.

Illinois KIDS COUNT is a project of Voices and is part of a nationwide network of state-level projects supported by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The annual Illinois KIDS COUNT report is widely regarded as the most thorough examination of the children's lives in the state. It uses the best available data to monitor the educational, social-emotional, economic, and physical well-being of Illinois children. The report and accompanying information is available at www.voices4kids.org
