How does the partnership work?

The community partnership approach is based on four fundamental principles:

•    Services for vulnerable families should be individualized to address each child's and each family's specific needs. 

•    Formal and informal supports and services should be available to families through a neighborhood- and community-based network. 

•    The Public Child Protective Services agency should adapt its policies and practices to support the approach, including providing services to families earlier, before crises occur. 

•    Community members, especially parents, should be involved in shaping the strategies and the network of services provided for families, based on the community's own resources, needs and cultures.
