Spotlight: Family Agency Collaborative Training Team (FACTT)
CFACE is launching a series of spotlight articles to reintroduce the Center’s various programs and initiatives that continue to perpetuate family-community-academic partnerships serving North Carolina families and communities. Today, we are spotlighting the Family Agency Collaborative Training Team (FACTT), a family engagement support project led by family partner specialist Dr. Glenda Clare and community partner, Ms. Joanne Scaturro.
What is FACTT?
CFACE has been an agency sponsor of FACTT since its inception in 2007. FACTT provides an opportunity for representatives of families and system of care agencies to come together to collaborate and form training partnerships. The system of care includes the following agency types: child welfare, juvenile justice, mental health and substance abuse, education, housing, social services and health agencies. FACTT partners co-create and deliver training in support of research, practice and policy implementation.
The list below highlights the training domains to be provided:
FACTT meetings will be held via Zoom six times a year (February, April, June, August, October and December) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.. Further study and discussion will be facilitated within FACTT’s Facebook group.
Who can join FACTT?
North Carolina system of care involvement is key to FACTT membership. North Carolina based agency employees (from those providing direct services to those in administration) and prospective and current family leaders are welcome to join FACTT.
