Collaboration

See how we collaborate and raise the awareness of strong family values.

Thriving Families Alliance works together through interagency and cross-discipline collaboration to better coordinate efforts to effectively address the needs of children and families.

Child and Family Resource Network

Whether you are a first-time parent or have older kids, family support can help you in these ways: Healthy Kids, Support to You, Access to support and community resources.  You give everything to raise healthy kids, we give our support to you. Family support services help you build your child’s skills and make lemonade from the lemons that life throws your way. Because all parents ask for support sometimes.

We connect with eight free family support programs that serve families with kids ages 0-5 and pregnant women in Pottawattamie and Montgomery Counties. Each program meets different needs and has specific requirements to participate. We use your information to determine which programs will work best for you, so you don’t have to sort through all of these options on your own.

Coordinating Services

Coordination of services refers to the centralized process by which multiple services and supports, often provided by multiple agencies, are synchronized to address the needs and strengths of each child, youth, or family. This process commonly follows a strength-based child and family team approach to develop a service plan. Coordination of services for families involved in child welfare may occur through methods such as Family Group Decision-Making, Team Decision-Making, wraparound, case management, and care coordination.

Thriving Families Alliance implements the Board’s plan for funding of services through the development and implementation of service contracts that comply with Agency policy and procedure.
