King County Leaders Share the Secrets to Their Successful Collaboration

9/13/2006:   CWLA is presenting the fifth installment of its six-part 2006 Competence On Call teleconference series on September 28, 2:00-3:30 p.m. (EDT) by looking at how collaborating across systems is one of the keys to effective service delivery in today's child welfare programs. Collaborating well, however, requires significant shifts in the way our systems work with each other, as well as with children and families.

In King County, Washington, public and private agencies have come together to examine and integrate the way they serve children and youth involved in both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Community leaders will share how they went about it, what they have accomplished thus far, what they have learned in the process, and how things are different today as a result of these efforts.

CWLA's teleconference series provides a forum to consider critical child welfare issues, disseminate research findings, and inform the field about innovative policy and practice initiatives. The current series focuses on agencies that have taken a variety of paths in attempting to transform themselves to better meet the service and system challenges of 21st Century child welfare work.
