Society simply must change the way it serves its most vulnerable members. Service delivery models are outdated and constrained by budgets, organizational structures and legislation. Citizens arenít getting what they need to become more self-sufficient and recover from hard times or significant events such as disasters. Government isnít keeping up with the demand generated by the complex times we live in and agencies are stressed to the breaking point by current service expectations. Something different must be done to generate better outcomes. This action requires better engagement between government and citizens which can lead to more self-reliant individuals and lower demands and costs on government. In California, one county is tackling this challenge head on and has found a better way to serve their citizens.
