HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WEEK
• Public-Private Partnership Strategic Planning to benefit Michigan—Five agency executives from the private provider sector and five administrators from the Michigan Department of Human Services attended a special, two-day, intensive strategic planning session in Ohio this week, funded by the Children’s Bureau. The Michigan Federation for Children and Families, on behalf of Michigan's private providers and the Michigan Department of Human Services, had submitted the proposal for Michigan’s involvement to the National Quality Improvement Center on the Privatization of Child Welfare Services. Chosen as one of five states from 20 applicants, Michigan will benefit from the in-depth technical assistance around building and maintaining a strong public/private partnership of child welfare leaders. Other states represented were: NE, NC, TX and WA. Attendees of the Sept. 14-16 Senior Management Conference will hear more about these strategic planning efforts!
