Early, often and ongoing. Recommendations for family and youth engagement.

March 15, 2021

As Colorado moves toward Family First implementation, the Family First Implementation Team’s Constituent Engagement Group made recommendations for counties, stakeholders and agencies to develop and embed continuous family feedback loops into new practices. The recommendations offer structure and support for the thoughtful selection of engagement strategies.

  • Embed family feedback loops into new practices from the very beginning.
  • Solicit and incorporate family input on the methods of gathering feedback.
  • Align the strategy for gathering family feedback to the nature of the information needed; collect feedback in a variety of ways.
  • Incorporate feedback into decisions to improve programming.
