A Key to Successful Collaboration


“Want to know how collaboration really takes hold? It happens when a Work First worker or a child welfare worker goes to a meeting in the other’s program area. Just by being there, they can open up a whole world of services that can benefit a family that the other worker didn’t know about. Once these workers see what their counterparts in other programs can bring to families, they will call upon each other and work together from that point on.”
