The National Community Action Partnership is seeking applications for a new Regional Whole Family Approach Community of Practice (COP). Community-based human service organizations and Tribal governments in the following 8 states are invited to apply: Alaska, Kentucky, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington, and Wisconsin.
The Regional Whole Family Approach COP will support 6 community-based organizations, including Tribal governments, in achieving greater results for families and communities by deploying a multi-pronged system of learning and support for organizations that are ready to pursue a Whole Family Approach that is strength-based, trauma-informed, and engages the entire community.
What is a Whole Family Approach?
Whole Family Approaches build family well-being by intentionally and simultaneously working with children and the adults in their lives together. As children, parents, and families grow and change across their lifespan, Whole Family Approaches align opportunities to help families pursue their goals and thrive, optimizing each person’s potential along the way. These approaches may also be called Two-Generation or 2-Gen approaches.
Why pursue a Whole Family Approach?
Providing integrated, high-quality, intentional supports to parents and children at the same time through a Whole Family Approach has the potential to improve both parent and child social and economic well-being producing a legacy of family well-being that passes from one generation to the next.
