The Early Childhood Tribal Workgroup will assemble at the Lake of the Torches Resort Casino in Lac du Flambeau, WI to recognize the growing list of collaborating partners and to get feedback from local community stakeholders. This will be another full day of discussions and group exercises designed to enhance your communities’ "90-Day Work Plan."

Knowing that service systems often operate in silos that may often result in duplicated services, conflicting messages, gaps in services and an otherwise confusing mess families struggle to navigate through. This fragmentation often impedes the ability to leverage valuable resources and expertise across systems to effectively support families. Building systems that work for all families require establishing intentional, meaningful and strong cross-sector collaborations that allow us to share our disparate resources in a way that has a positive impact on families.   We encourage you to invite other members from your community to build a more vibrant discussion and generate positive outcomes.  

Sponsored through a collaboration of funds and support from:
