For the past 12 months, the My Place CT Partner leadership council has met monthly to develop the strategies and guidelines that form the core structure of the My Place CT Partner network. The group consists of organizations who received grants to act as a learning laboratory on how towns can identify and connect all the long-term support and services in their communities.
The Partner leadership council made some recommendations to guide development of the Partner network in 2018, including recommendations to help bring new Partners on board.
Leadership council recommendations:
Partners should use the new My Place CT presentation deck and flyer to recruit new partners in their communities
We’ll be adding more information on the steps to become a partner and what’s in it for communities
Enhance the Pre-screen tool that helps consumers learn what state services they may be eligible for by providing more actionable information to help them apply or contact service providers
Ongoing Partner recruitment
The vision for the network is to bring local services and resources into the network. As ambassadors who understand the need for help, Partners are in an ideal position to encourage others to join and strengthen the entire system. Log in and use the recruitment tools in the Partner portal under Enrolled Partner Resources to reach out to more potential members.
