What becomes clear after conducting more than 4500 Family Group Decision Making Conferences is this: it is truly a shift in both a philosophical and practice from “business as usual.”  For participants used to working in the social service system, this often requires some orientation.

Still, over and over, families and providers alike become enthusiastic about the process when they see how effective it can be.  Family Group Decision Making requires significant ongoing commitment from all involved, whether formally (service agencies) or informally (family and friends).  It Takes A Village Inc is committed to educating and helping participants to make the most of this empowering process.  Please take a moment to orient yourself here at this website or links that it provides to online resources elsewhere.
