The Children’s Cabinet adds Public Value

  1. Coordinates approaches to the delivery of services;
  2. Establishes administrative priorities across departments/agencies/bureaus;
  3. Distributes through its Senior Staff and the Regional Children’s Cabinets, Pooled Flexible Funds to fill one-time family needs where there is no other eligibility-related service available to keep a child or teen safely in the home;
  4. Leverages resources both human (staff) and financial, that maximizes funding by collaborative grants and best use of federal funding streams, as mandates allow.
  5. Operationalize the Governor’s commitment to creating better outcomes for children and youth in Maine.
