How we listen

    We provide healthcare to children with an emphasis on children who have complex medical conditions. These are children who have developmental and/or physical delays, are on the autism spectrum, have behavioral health concerns, chronic illness, and/or experience a traumatic injury.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To understand people's needs and how we can help them achieve their goals,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Many of our families have children with compromised immune systems. They are concerned with the spread of COVID and weren't comfortable with therapists coming into their homes. We now offer families the option of doing all home visits, all telehealth visits, or a hybrid of rotating home visits and telehealth visits. This seems to be working well and families feel better they have a choice as to how their child receives care.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    Our staff, Our board,

    The families we serve appreciate that their input is being listened to and that changes to how their child is receiving care are being made to positively impact their health.

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    It is difficult to get the people we serve to respond to requests for feedback, We don’t have the right technology to collect and aggregate feedback efficiently, It is difficult to find the ongoing funding to support feedback collection, Staff find it hard to prioritize feedback collection and review due to lack of time, It is difficult to identify actionable feedback,

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
