Ten years of partnership in the Collaborative Plan has yielded many successes and lessons learned. Five members of the Collaborative Plan stakeholder group shared a TED Talks-style presentation that covers some of the works that have contributed to and improved services to children and families over the past ten years. Each presenter chose a topic that was near and dear to their heart. We hope you enjoy these as much as we have and we are excited for the next ten years together!
