Shelley Waters Boots

This report highlights the work taking place in three U.S. communities--Palm Beach, FL; Petal, MS; and Los Angeles, CA--which seek to build, reform, and align comprehensive child and family services. Key themes that unite this work include identifying and cultivating strong leaders who are committed to systemic success; developing meaningful partnerships with families and community-based agencies; and institutionalizing the work that is taking place.
