Family involvement is a necessary component in all levels of systems work. It is imperative that as families play a directing role in and feel committed to their families well-being. Youth, their parents, and professionals need to be valued as equal partners in creating systemic change.
Provider involvement works in partnership with youth and families to assist in improving youth well-being as well as enhancing family dynamics. Providers offer support, treatment services, and other resources to youth and families in the community. Providers assist in ensuring youth receive appropriate and well-rounded services. Provider involvement in the Tri-County Community Collaborative is beneficial by providing education about resources, services, and supports for youth and families.
Health and Human Service organizations include: Department of Social Services, Police, Fire, Schools, Department of Juvenile Justice, and Guardian Ad Litem (just to name a few). These groups offer the opportunity to collaborate with other organizations that play a role in the lives of those they serve.
By working collectively with the other members they have the ability to make effective referrals within a network of service providers toward the goal of successful client outcomes.
Faith communities promote healthy families and communities. These communities have an important role in addressing needs and connecting persons in need with services. By being members of the Tri-County Community Collaborative, a bridge can be built between the systems with expertise to treat problems and the faith community that promotes healthy families.
Advocay organizations, that promote support of children, youth, or families with substance use or mental health disorders, or developmental disabilities, are important members of the Tri-County Community Collaborative. These advocacy organizations not only provide sharable resources to the Collaborative but also benefit from Collaborative information and partnerships. Together, advocacy groups and the Collaborative, provide a stong team to help create a better life for children, youth, and families.
Youth involvement is a necessary component in all levels of systems work. It is imperative that as consumers of services, youth play a directing role in and feel committed to their own well-being. Youth, their parents, and professionals need to be valued as equal partners in creating systemic change. In order to achieve authentic youth involvement, community and professional partners must accept that they need more than just youth input, and that young people must be actively engaged.
