Centering Families for an Integrated System of Care

By learning from and with each other, we can create a culturally relevant and trauma-informed system of care that strengthens the voice and choice of the child, youth and family. Let’s work together to build consensus around their strengths and needs in service planning and delivery. And, ultimately, let’s strive to improve and enhance the well-being for children, youth, families, communities and tribes.
