Communication and Meetings Structure

The Lifecourse Framework has been fully implemented at intake to complete the Front Door Vision of a process that is quick, consistent, family friendly, streamlined, easy to access resources, and face to face interactions with increased awareness before the front door.  It has also been implemented in Early Intervention during transition to preschool services.  The Lifecourse Framework continues to be integrated into our Employment Coalition and Cross System and Quality Management planning.  Information is communicated through social media and system of care website.
