KARA is a Convener for At-Risk Children’s Issues
What does that mean?
KARA brings together individuals and groups to address the complex issues of at-risk children, child abuse, and child protection and their far-reaching effects on our society and economy. We use our influence and authority to initiate collaborative effort from business professionals, public officials, community leaders, and non-profit organizations.
Our primary responsibility is to serve as the organizer and administrator (convener) of the collaboration, carrying out the preliminary and follow-up tasks that ensure the process proceeds smoothly. In creating a “platform” for the collaboration, KARA’s tasks include:
- Clarifying the purpose of the collaborative leadership effort
- Developing a preliminary list of stakeholders and leaders to invite to the table
- Securing high-level stakeholder buy-in as well as intellectual and financial support
- Providing skilled facilitation
This helps to inform and improve the people, programs, and policies that impact at risk children with the goal of breaking the long established cycle of child abuse in our communities.
