We are excited to announce the creation of our new Online Resource Linkage page. We hope you will utilize this newly developed page. Our intent is for this linkage source to be a way for families to access information, services, resources, and community supports.
Our goal has been, and will continue to be, working with the community and partners to link them to beneficial assistance.
We hope that our efforts to expand our ability to promote connection to community resources will help build stronger ties in the community, and impact family well-being.
We invite you to use our new SICPP Referral/Follow-up Tracking Sheet for referrals made. A referral is defined as a linkage between two or more organizations, groups or persons that results in providing services, information or collaboration that provides a program, service or training for staff, residents or clients.
Purpose and Goal: To track service referrals made between Community Partnership members. To enhance service referrals, data collection and reporting.
