About This Book
Educators, social-service personnel, and legislators around the country are realizing that the current compartmentalized system of caring for the personal crises of children is not working. Services are often offered a la carte and do not take into consideration all factors adversely affecting the life of a child. As a result, communities are beginning to encourage social-service agencies and others to depart from traditional forms of care in order to build collaboratives. The look of a collaborative differs from one community to the next, yet each one’s goal is the same: to comprehensively assist children and families through a program of integrated services.
In this book, Larry Guthrie explains how to establish a collaborative in your community. His nine-step plan outlines necessary considerations for getting started. In addition, he addresses issues such as administration of the collaborative, its location, funding, and how to ensure that it will last beyond the first year.
