Increasing Use of Underutilized Family and Early Childhood Resources

ECAP Family Supports Strategy Group has worked to develop an understanding of the service system in Bernalillo County, what works, and what we need to do better. Through a series of surveys, summits, and small group discussions, Bernalillo County service providers have identified the need for a better coordinated system of services, strong relationships between organizations, and support for culturally appropriate service provision.

Current activities to address those needs include formal and informal networking, convening, and co-learning opportunities to support the efforts of providers to increase their capacity and strengthen connections among different entities serving families in our community.
