Our Children Succeed Initiative is a partnership of children, youth, parents and caregivers who promote competent and coordinated services designed to enhance access to, and the effectiveness of, services for children and youth with social, emotional and behavioral concerns and their families in Northwestern Minnesota.
We believe that services need to reflect the culturally and linguistically diverse needs of families served including respect for heritage, customs, beliefs, and values of racial, ethnic, religious and social groups in a family-driven, youth-guided process to identify and carry out needed services.
The membership includes the Initiative staff, direct care providers, parents, representatives from culturally diverse groups, advocacy organizations and representatives from the Council of Collaboratives.
All plans include our SOC goals, objectives and strategies to guide service delivery.
