Systems Change Work Group to Bring Systems of Care to Scale

Purpose

At the January 2008 meeting of the CCC, the System Change Work Group was asked to focus its efforts on what it would take to bring systems of care to scale.  The charge to the Work Group was to develop a blueprint for expanding systems of care so that they exist in communities and tribes throughout the country.  The Workgroup held several meetings, convened conference calls, reviewed existing material, gathered information about efforts to bring other human service interventions to scale, and developed a report.  At the CCC meeting in January 2009, the chairs presented the report and the conclusions that the Workgroup had drawn from its efforts and offered recommendations for next steps.
