Our Record

Since 2003, consultative planning services have been used to assist the U.S. Territory of American Samoa in planning for the Territory-wide delivery of home visiting services to assist at-risk families. We have coalesced youths from throughout Arizona in developing and implementing statewide tobacco use prevention efforts. We assisted the Republic of the Marshall Islands in developing community-based plans for substance abuse prevention across 27 atolls spanning thousands of nautical miles. We assisted the state of Arizona and its substance abuse prevention coalitions in developing and implementing the Arizona Strategic Plan for Substance Abuse Prevention. For several years we have facilitated the efforts of the Pima County Tucson Commission on Addiction, Prevention, and Treatment. We have conducted a statewide initiative to better coordinate response services for children exposed to domestic violence. We initiated a statewide needs assessment on needs, issues, and recommendations for better serving children of incarcerated parents. We also assisted the Arizona Department of Economic Security plan for privatizing the JOBS program using a client-centered, community-based approach.
