Community Partner Examples

Identifying community partners should include the widest possible net in order to ensure that everyone who may have interest and/or involvement is invited to attend. This includes educators, mental health providers, medical providers, and more. Engage in conversations in a way to identify more potential community partners and invite them. The more community involvement the better-quality services families will receive. We recommend representation from the following entities:
