Whole Kids Outreach: How a Relational Model of Integrated Care Is Decreasing Abuse and Neglect in Rural Missouri (Workshop 133)
The workshop session describes the Whole Kids Outreach (WKO) model of comprehensive care for abused and neglected children, which focuses on wellness and prevention as well as the integration of faith-based principles. Topics addressed include the utilization of a combination of in-home and center-based services, educating for at-risk youth, networking of resources plus process, program impact, and long-term outcome evaluation. Based on "circles of support," the organization works to build relationships and communities within its own walls in order to have the capacity and support to build these same relationships with program participants.
