Whole Family Approach Planning and Implementation
by Southern New Hampshire ServicesRegion 1 · Manchester, New Hampshire
The “Two-Generation” approach to delivering social services has existed within the Head Start program for more than 50 years. Southern New Hampshire Services (SNHS) is building on and expanding this model beyond Head Start by developing a Whole Family Approach to delivering services, which aims to break the cycle of generational poverty. This initiative involves changing the service delivery model within the agency, moving from siloed departments and services to a wholistic approach. Each participating family will work with a “coach” who will provide intensive case management support in helping the family develop goals and plans to achieve them within realistic time frames. Support services from within SNHS, as well as partner organizations in the community, will be utilized to overcome the barriers which prevent families from moving beyond their current circumstance.
