Family Voices recently shared that they have been awarded the Family Engagement and Leadership in Systems of Care (FELSC) grant from Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB).
Over the course of the grant, Family Voices will provide national leadership on family engagement to support youth and family leaders, Maternal and Child Health (MCH) programs, and other stakeholders that serve children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). Their role as the technical assistance (TA) provider for the Family-to-Family Health Information Centers (F2Fs) includes new goals for increasing F2Fs' capability to engage diverse, underserved CYSHCN and their families in direct patient care, organizational design, and governance, along with increasing F2Fs' capability to collect, monitor, and report on family engagement data.
SPAN's own Diana Autin is one of three Co-Directors on the grant.
