The Whole Family Approach Building Blocks are a set of organizational touchstones essential to establishing a Whole Family Approach. The Building Blocks were developed by the Community Action Partnership based on best practices of Community Agencies who have successfully implemented the Whole Family Approach, as well as extensive research and direct conversations with subject matter experts from across the field. The Building Blocks are customized to reflect the organizational structure of Community Action Agencies, and are meant to serve as a guide for Community Action Agencies wanting to develop a Whole Family Approach to meet the needs of families in their community. This resource guide lays out the components of each building block, side by side with curated resources to assist agencies with the implementation of the various building blocks.
