“It truly helped to have someone outside the community facilitate this process.

It took the "personal interests" away and kept the group focused on the issues at hand.”

“ Excellent resource to get providers excited and focused, structured and on task to set

goals, mission statements, priorities, etc. and move ahead”

“It really helps bring together key players who normally get so overwhelmed with their day to day tasks that they don't take the time to follow through with an effort like this.”
