The Children’s Steering Committee continues our commitment to prioritizing quality of care across all children’s services. At this time, we would like to ask all children’s services providers for names of individuals who they believe are qualified to participate on one or more of the following work groups:

  • School-Based Behavioral Health (SBBH)
  • Children in Congregate Care – Pediatric Care (children with complex medical issues and IDD)
  • Children in Congregate Care – Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF)

Each work group will be co-chaired by a member of the Steering Committee and a provider representative. Each work group will also have a DHS or ODP representative as a resource.

All interested persons should email the following individuals for the corresponding work group:

• Pediatric Care Work Group – Tammy Marsico
• SBBH Work Group – Barb Saunders or Elspeth Williams
• PRTF Work Group – Robena Spangler **(still seeking a provider representative(s) as co-chair).

Please plan to submit names of individuals no later than COB on Thursday, May 18. Dates, times, and meeting places, including conference call information, are TBD after work group membership is completed. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Robena.

Thank you, in advance, for your support!

RCPA members who provide children’s services rely on RCPA and its capacity to understand the business of providing an array of unique services intended to meet the needs of the children, youth, and families in PA. The scope of services provided by over 125 child-serving agencies presents opportunities to collaborate, prioritize, and address issues that have an impact on service delivery, planning, policy, licensing, and regulation.

The RCPA Children’s Division and its members remain committed to the work done through the Children’s Steering Committee. The Steering Committee is a group of 12–15 leaders from member agencies who dedicate time away from the work they do every day in order to participate in the development and oversight of the division’s priorities. Currently, we are seeking interested members to replace openings on the committee.

If you are interested, please submit a brief Letter of Interest that outlines your desire/interest to serve on the Steering Committee and a summary of your work experience that you believe qualifies you as a subject matter expert for working with children, youth, and families. We strive to have a diverse group to include leadership in finance, service provision, supervision (both administrative and clinical), and business planning. It is important to recognize each member’s uniqueness and how it can help to advance the goals and objectives of the committee.

Please submit your Letter of Interest via email to Robena Spangler and our Co-Chairs Tammy Marsico and Garrett Trout. We want to thank all of you for your interest and ongoing support of the Children’s Division.
