Networks are local meetings that bring together all the supports and resources involved with a specific case. Networks are for children and families and aging-out youth. Networks use the strength-based approach in which the family or individual needing help is an equal partner with the agencies. They share a common goal: a conference between the family or individual and the providers, for the purpose of assisting in cases where problems are greater than a single agency can address alone. Agency staff volunteers provide information and coordinate meetings for the various networks.
