In September 2016, we transitioned from a model of site locations having a standardized staff team to a model where resources and services will be allocated and provided responsively to the identified needs of children and families in each program location. Sites have core early learning and family support teams and there is an agency Resource Team whose members are either assigned to program locations based on the needs of children in that location each year or are agency wide resources to be accessed as needed.
