Discover the resources your community already has to care for children and families, and what you still need on the path to more than enough

Foster care can feel like a puzzle. But providing more than enough is possible. 

Along the way, you’ll have to ask: Do we have all the pieces we need to put the puzzle together? 

What resources do we already have in our community? What are the problems we need to solve? Who is working in this space? How can we do more together? 

Discovering Your Community will help you answer those very questions. This four-week collaborative learning experience will guide you and a group of your local collaborators through a three-stage process of understanding the nine essential pieces for serving children and families in foster care, identifying the biggest strengths and gaps in foster care in your county, and determining the best next steps forward.

What You Can Expect

Collaborative Brainstorming

To kick off this project, you and your local collaborators will put your heads together during facilitated brainstorming times. We’ll think through the nine pieces every community needs to care for children and families, the current strengths and gaps in your county, and who the key players are in your community.

Community Conversations

During Weeks Two and Three, you’ll launch into your community with the tools to have conversations with key stakeholders in foster care about the strengths, gaps, and opportunities for collaboration in your county.

Strategic Next Steps

Lastly, we’ll guide you through the process of narrowing down all the information that you’ve gathered during this project into a couple of strategic next steps for effective and collaborative action in your county. You’ll receive a customized report that will serve as a reference of all the work that the group has accomplished during this project and the plan to continue forward.
