Stakeholder Involvement in Child Welfare
The Fall 2005 issue of Child Welfare Matters, published by the National Resource Center for Organizational Improvement (NRCOI), is devoted to the importance of stakeholder involvement in effective delivery of child welfare services. The lead article describes the reasons for engaging stakeholders; identifies the individuals, groups, and systems that can be important agency partners; lists the stages of collaboration and the key factors to success; and provides models of stakeholder involvement.
Other articles provide examples of two States that have experienced some success at developing community partnerships and collaboration. Articles on State-tribal partnerships that include strategies for successful partnering and examples of States and tribes that have done so are also featured.
