OKN Committees

In November 2013, Our Kids Network moved from a service integration framework to a Collective Impact model; a system that brings people together to work together to have an impact on complex community challenges.  Focus on relationships and communication within and between organizations is key to our approach.

Our Kids Network has two distinct roles

  1. As a network working towards the common vision and the Halton 7 population results.  This is the responsibility of Our Kids Network committees

  2. As backbone support to ensure that the collective efforts of the network are meaningfully and adequately supported.  This is the responsibility of the Senior Executive Group, Collective Impact Planning Committee and Our Kids Network staff.
