Tennesseee Alliance for Children and Families

Guiding Principles

The family, community and government share responsibility for the safety and well-being of children;

Service providers, families, foster and adoptive parents are partners in the provision of timely and appropriate high-quality care;

An integrated system of care should emphasize prevention over intervention, reflect a partnership between family, community and government and be culturally relevant;

Partnership requires open, honest and respectful communication fostering an awareness of services and agreed upon authorities and responsibilities;

Staff at all levels should be held accountable to a professional code of conduct; and

Quality improvement is an on-going process, utilizing external and internal performance standards, as well as fostering professional development.
