Partnerships are always a challenge, but they also can really pay off. Most human services leaders have experience partnering with other like-organizations.  However, engaging health providers is often difficult, as they do not typically turn to the human services sector for partnership and support. Now, more than ever, the intersection between health and human services needs to be explored and leveraged to create positive outcomes for families and communities.

This webinar will feature a success story. Beech Acres Parenting Center and The Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital have developed a unique, best-in-class partnership that is yielding very positive results. This partnership has not always been easy; it has taken intentional effort to develop a shared vision and collaborative goals. This journey has included honest and authentic communication, mutual accountability, and a tireless drive to achieve the strategic vision.

Learn how, in addition to the alignment of leadership, all project staff have been engaged to work as one team, despite allegiance to two different organizations. Presenters will share how leading the project team in this manner has provided great opportunities for learning, process improvements, and success.  After hearing about the partnership’s challenges and successes, participants will be able to ask questions, make comments, and engage in a rich conversation about how to build a partnership that intersects health and human services.

This webinar is presented by the Health and Human Services Intersection Alliance Peer Exchange (APEX) group. Join the group on myAlliance.
