Sometimes, advocacy organizations hope to improve and/or connect local organizations to form a larger network of support across the nation. One example of this is the National Center for Ease of Use of Community-Based Services. Their mission is to advance policy and practice solutions that improve the ease of use of community-based services for families with a child with special health care needs (CSHCN).
The goals of the Center are to:
- Develop a Community of Practice Network in community-based services to promote peer-to-peer TA across states
- Document activities and recognize leading communities advancing the ease of use of community based services
- Promote partnerships with Title V and CSHCN directors, families and providers to identify and assess new solutions and inform members of the Maternal and Child Health community.
