Building Community Collaboration to Achieve Permanency for Children Using Alternate Dispute Resolution (Workshop 134)
Presenters describe the process of building community collaboration with the goal of achieving permanency for children through the use of alternative dispute resolution. The content is based on the experience of the presenters with a federally funded Adoption Opportunities grant, Expediting Permanency through Community Decision-Making (Grant No. 90-CO-0927, funded 10/01/00 to 9/30/03). Over the course of this three-year demonstration project, five communities from around the State of Iowa have been engaged in a process of building a community team, learning about various models of alternate dispute resolution, and selecting and implementing one or more models of alternate dispute resolution in their communities.
