This paper examines how El Paso created seamless, family-centered services and offers lessons learned from El Paso's experience. The purpose of this paper is to offer an outsider’s view of what the Department is doing and how they have been able to do it. The authors assert that no single set of steps will lead another community to the same result. Instead, it is the philosophical approach, the vision, to use the Department’s words, and the leadership that has brought El Paso County to its current, everevolving system of human services delivery. El Paso County’s success is less about particular structures and policies than about the overarching vision and leadership. (Author)
