Pat Baker of Baker Squared, LLC and Elaine Slaton of Slaton Associates have developed an engaging video showcasing the excellent family-driven work being done by families and providers involved with the System of Care site in Saginaw, Michigan.
The video provides an exploration of four community-wide traits supportive of a family-driven system of care. (1) Leaders consider it an honor & a privilege to serve children, youth & families. (2) Providers, policy makers & agency leaders value and rely on the experiential knowledge & expertise of families to make things better. (3) Each person works hard to suspend blame & judgement, while consciously recognizing one another as fully human - with vulnerabilities, flaws & strengths. (4) Families are committed to improving their community.
