    A better place to raise a family

    A community where coordination and cooperation are the rule of thumb and not the exception.

    A community where services will be integrated so there will be no wrong door and services can be mobilized to the need.

    A community where available resources will be fully utilized and additional resources can be effectively developed as needed.

    Butler County will be a place where citizens can look for a way to help one another, not with a hand-out, but with a hand-up.

    PARTNERSHIP CORE RESULTS
    Adults working

    Children safe in their families, and safe in their communities

    Young children ready to enter school

    Healthy Children and families

    Children and youth succeeding in school

    Youth ready to enter the workforce and become productive citizens

    FOUR POLICY DIRECTIONS
    Increase the accountability of communities and agencies to improve results.

    Change the way services are delivered by integrating and locating them in the neighborhoods where children go to school and families live.

    Change the way services are financed by pooling funds more flexibly across state agencies and communities, and by tying program funding to the results they produce.

    Change the way decisions are made by involving neighborhood residents and community stakeholders in decisions that affect their well being.
