Our newest subsidiary, the Family Impact Network, begins its network administration role for parent-child visitation services in Spokane County July 1! A partnership with Washington State Children's Administration, this new public-private collaboration is working to implement performance based contracting in the child welfare system, supporting regional service delivery and creating efficiencies within the delivery system while incentivizing positive outcomes for children. This new delivery system will provide support, allow for flexibility, and offer new data so that social workers and providers can best serve children and families.
FIN developed out of EHF's strategic focus on preventing and mitigating adverse childhood experiences as part of its work to improve health outcomes in Eastern Washington. Stay tuned for more updates as FIN's roll out continues!
