Engaging Community Stakeholders and Building Community Partnerships

The National Child Welfare

Resource Center for Organizational Improvement

why stakeholder involvement is critical
Why Stakeholder Involvement is Critical
  • The child welfare system is much larger than the public child welfare agency.
  • No single agency can fulfill the responsibility of keeping children safe, in permanent homes, and achieving well-being.
  • The goal is to empower stakeholders so that the entire community takes child protection as its responsibility.
why stakeholder involvement is critical continued
Why Stakeholder Involvement is Critical (continued)
  • Partnering with community stakeholders helps create a constituency for child welfare, so that when the agency needs support it gets it (for example, legislation, finances, respect even in the fact of a child injury or death).
  • Partnerships also strengthen community stakeholders.

Successful Stakeholder Involvement

Means:

Collaboration and partnerships as a way of life for the public child welfare agency, not just for the Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) and the IV-B Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP).

      • Citizen Review Panels involved in case reviews (Idaho, New Hampshire)
    • Preparation and support

  • Other methods for input
    • Child welfare attends specific audience councils (foster parents and youth) and gathers information to bring to CQI councils (Hawaii)

      • CW/Court partnerships
      • Service array assessment
      • Youth services
      • Fatherhood services
      • Family team meetings
