Ralston House Inclusion Committee

Ralston House is seeking members to join the Inclusion Committee.

This group meets quarterly to review National Children’s Alliance (NCA)

Standards. MDT members have a responsibility to identify possible issues

with the child and family they are working with to better understand their

unique needs. With a better understanding of a family’s  diverse background, MDT members are then equipped with knowledge regarding their perceptions of abuse, their level of acculturation, and religious and cultural beliefs. This information is necessary to effectively respond and to children and families that Ralston House serves.
