HUB Size
• Large enough to use resources effectively to meet our
goals and positively impact children and families
• Small enough to sustain cohesive, intact partnerships,
provide regular, well oiled communications, immediacy of
services, pyramid of interventions, and inclusive, equitable
services

When we share our
expertise, learn
together, and build
consensus, shared
aspirational goals
become reality.
