Partners for Healthy Kids

Partners for Healthy Kids

Connecting community leaders. Improving the lives of kids.

In an effort to encourage collaborative partnerships and avoid duplication of services between schools, public agencies, and other organizations serving kids and their families, the 1993 Minnesota Legislature approved legislation that led to the creation of 47 family services collaboratives in the state of Minnesota. We are one of those 47 collaboratives. Our partners serve kids and families in Wayzata Public Schools.
We have three primary functions:
  • Facilitating Collaboration: Bringing community leaders together to learn from and educate one another about existing needs and services and to work collaboratively to develop innovative programs, services, and delivery models.
  • Funding: Manage the distribution of federal funds generated through the Local Collaborative Time Study (LCTS) to local entities serving kids and their families. This includes managing a process for the agreement, review, and awarding of funds.
  • Administration: Administering the school district’s participation in the LCTS.

  • For the first 20 years of our existence, we were known as Communities in Collaboration Council (CICC).

  • National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day

    As part of National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day, PARTNERS for Healthy Kids and Wayzata Public Schools will be hosting an “Awareness Day Live!” webinar viewing event and facilitated discussion.

    The event, Awareness Day 2017: “Partnering for Help and Hope”, will focus on the importance of integrating behavioral health and primary care for children, youth, and young adults with mental and/or substance use disorders. Awareness Day Live! is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of systems of care, as well as prompt discussion about children’s mental health and integrated care. More than 1,100 communities and 160 national collaborating organizations and federal programs across the country participate in community events, youth educational programs, health fairs, art exhibits, and social networking campaigns in observance of Awareness Day.

    The event will take place on Thursday, May 4 at 5:30-7:30p.m. at the Ridgedale YMCA (12301 Ridgedale Drive, Minnetonka) in the Healthy Living Center from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
