The Providers & Community (or People’s) Group works to maintain the importance of the client voice within the service system. The relationship/experience between the service provider and the client is key to creating an easily navigated system. They recognize and address the gaps between the community and direct service organizations by taking an intentional, human-centered approach responding to inequities.
By creating community advisory groups, clients are given a platform to express the difficulties of our current system, allowing us to better equip our service providers with the tools, training, and acknowledgment needed to improve the delivery of wrap around services for all.
