The increased public interest had its positive results in that it drew the legislature public. agencies various professional associations and community organizations to initiate contact. with or respond to ADFAN s call for exploration of how they could contribute or bring about. specific collaboration efforts Since early 2013 these efforts have multiplied and strengthened. The PIP which ADFAN intensively worked on during last year was a significant catalyst and. vehicle to not only at working collaboratively on the PIP but to develop stronger relations with. other agencies and organizations, The most mutually satisfying and fruitful one has been with the courts Shortly after ADFAN. approached the CIP Coordinator about the strategy on the training of agency attorneys. regarding the federal requirements on the different types of court hearings CIP shared a copy. of their State Plan It became immediately evident that their objectives were amazingly similar. to those ADFAN pursued on the PIP This was a strong motivator as we realized that by working. closely together and sharing resources our mutually shared objectives had a real chance of. being accomplished This became a self fulfilling prophecy in that we have produced. measurable positive results such as improvements in the punctual filing in the court of the. social reports by ADFAN s social workers notifications of hearings to caretakers interviewing of. minors by the Family Affairs Advocate in San Juan in the cases in which the new court reporting. guide is being used the reports have improved in content and in the organization of the.
