F11 Hiring Parent Partners

Lorie Lacey-Payne, Judi Knittel

Parent or family partners have gained respect as agency efforts to ensure the family voice and choice is present. They can link family culture to services, shift the perception many families have about involvement in services and bridge the divide from worker to client. Unfortunately, those same factors that make them appealing as a family change agent or agency informant on policy and practice can make it difficult to hire staff. This workshop will be presented by parent partner champions who have found the way to hire and support staff. Come hear how it can be done and get inspired to be a champion in your agency.
