For our 25th annual conference, we put together a special commerative issue of the Reclaiming Children magazine. In early 2014, we released a newly reformatted newsletter. This rebranding was an effort to turn the growing newsletter into a full fledged magazine. We received great feedback on the change.


As a result, we have taken that first issue and made it into this special commemorative issue that both celebrates our 25 year history and our outlook for the future.  We hope you enjoy all the pictures, articles, and information in this commemorative issue. We had a lot of fun and nostalgic moments putting it together.

Family-driven, as a value, has long been a cornerstone of our work in Systems of Care. We dedicate significant time to recognizing families and making sure they are at the table and have a voice. We make sure that families receive compensation for their work. We say that families are primary decision makers in the lives of their children, but is this the essence of family-driven care? Does this expression of family-driven resonate across cultures? Does it have the impact we desire at all levels?

In this guide we will explore family-driven as a “practice”. How does what we do match up with what we believe? Are our actions moving us toward our goal of family-driven “systems”?
