The Glades Initiative was formed in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP) issued by the Board of County Commissioners for Palm Beach County through the Department of Community Services. The RFP outlined the need for a local source to identify and coordinate the health and human service needs of the community as well as develop and encourage collaborative relationships to collectively address the community's needs. Improvements are being sought in terms of outcomes (positive impact on the residents in the community) and efficiency (better outcomes achieved with the various funding streams available within the community). We believe that 'our people are our fortune' and are committed to effective change.
With health, human, and social services, there is an apparent organizational shift from the traditional system to a more holistic system of care. While each component of our system is vitally important, it is only through collaboration and coordination of these components that we will be successfully affect systemic changes. The Glades Initiative attempts to establish itself as an organization rich in community resources with much potential within the scoope and purpose of the Initiative. Through the efforts of the Glades Initiative, member organizations should be able to accomplish more as well as accomplish those objectives more effectively, thereby building capacity within existing resources.
