On July 6, the Casey Foun­da­tion will host the sec­ond in a series of webi­na­rs explor­ing what it takes to address par­ent and child needs at the same time. The one-hour ses­sion will focus on the oper­a­tional ele­ments of a two-gen­er­a­tion approach, includ­ing struc­ture, fam­i­ly intake, the align­ment of adult and child ser­vices and per­haps one of the most cru­cial com­po­nents, the teams that get these efforts off the ground.


As more two-gen­er­a­tion ini­tia­tives have emerged, com­mon chal­lenges have too: Many orga­ni­za­tions have strug­gled with issues such as devel­op­ing the appro­pri­ate infra­struc­ture and fund­ing mech­a­nisms to coor­di­nate child and adult ser­vices and col­lect­ing and inte­grat­ing data on families.

Dur­ing the webi­nar, Casey will share lessons drawn from the expe­ri­ences of sev­er­al orga­ni­za­tions across the coun­try that are effec­tive­ly bring­ing togeth­er pro­grams and ser­vices that address the needs of the whole fam­i­ly. These insights also are high­light­ed in a new Foun­da­tion brief.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from two of the groups, the Com­mu­ni­ty Action Project of Tul­sa Coun­ty and the Edu­ca­tion­al Alliance, will dis­cuss the strate­gies they are using to oper­a­tional­ize a two-gen­er­a­tion approach with the fam­i­lies they serve.
