A family’s ability to access and use prevention and intervention services for children and parents/caregivers can have a major impact on children’s later success in life. This is true from early childhood up through the stage when young people transition into adulthood. The systems of care that support these families are at their best when they are working to remove barriers and promote trauma-informed, evidence-based services.
Harder+Company has decades of experience helping organizations to advance the wellbeing of vulnerable children, youth, and families. We have supported initiatives that focus on child abuse prevention and intervention; foster care; home-based family support; transitional and independent living; and early intervention. We have also worked extensively with public systems to develop quality improvement plans and practice frameworks, as well assess the needs of community members and service providers.
