In Summer 2019, the Coalition received a grant from the Mid-Iowa Health Foundation to work towards Transformational Change within the child welfare system. Through this work, the Vision Council, a public/private partnership, was created to move forward the goals of the grant. The Vision Council is guided through a Results Based Accountability model by Marlo Nash, independent consultant. 

The work is data driven to determine best results for Iowa's kids and families. The Council and invited professionals engaged in a culture inventory to determine current and ideal culture. From the results, a "From-To" shift was developed to help guide the work of the Vision Council.
