This brief is the second in a series exploring what it takes to address parent and child needs at the same time. It focuses on the operational elements of a two-generation approach, including structure, family intake, the alignment of adult and
child services and perhaps one of the most crucial components, the teams that get these initiatives off the ground. The lessons we share are drawn from the experiences of organizations from seven sites across the country — Atlanta; Buffalo, New York; Columbus, Ohio; Garrett County, Maryland; New York City; San Antonio; and Tulsa, Oklahoma — that are implementing an exciting and, in some cases, evolving array of whole-family approaches.
