A Child’s Place – one year after the merger

Post-Merger Program Adjustments

Based on feedback from stakeholders including CMS leadership, Thompson made the following adjustments to the ACP service model to maximize its positive impact to the community:

  • Family focused, child centered, two-generational approach,
  • Pivoted to a year-round program (homelessness doesn’t stop when
    school ends),
  • Focused Intensive Social Work Model on family self-sufficiency within
    90-120 days,
  • Agreed to accept direct referrals from non-CMS entities such as child
    welfare, hospitals, early childhood centers, and other community
  • Embedded a mental health therapist within the structure of the ACP team,
  • Focused on all social determinants of health (SDOH) in our families.
