The goals will be achieved through networking, collaboration and relationship building. The project will educate community leaders about available resources; encourage early intervention; provide culturally sensitive resources so families can achieve their goals; help improve advocacy skills for the communities; create tools to better help families coordinate services; and help with development of employment opportunities.
