Designed to celebrate family/interprofessional collaborative partnerships, this publication describes high-quality examples of how families and professionals at the family, community, state, and national levels have worked together to create programs and practices that are family-friendly and responsive to what families have said they want and need. Following the preface offering a call to action, the publication's contents are: (1) "Creating the Context: Family-Centered, Community-Based, Culturally Sensitive Partnerships" (Kathleen Kirk Bishop and Polly Arango); (2) "The Gallivan-Hackett-Waters Story: Three Generations of Partnerships" (Pat Hackett-Waters, Glen Gallivan, and Lucille Hackett); (3) "Family Voices: A Grassroots Public/Private Partnership" (Polly Arango, Betsy Anderson, Julie Beckett, Josie Woll, Trish Thomas, Maggie Schwarz, and Bob Craig); (4) "Peanut Butter & Jelly: A Culturally Sensitive, Community-Based Family Center in New Mexico" (Sylvia Ruiz, Antionette Tellez-Humble, Maida Trujillo, Stella Primavera-Stanz, Troy Martinez, and Debbie Sanchez); (5) "PACER's Team Training on Transition: A Statewide Partnership with Youth in Minnesota" (Ceci Shapland and Corey Jackson); (6) "Project Unity: Family Empowerment and Community Renewal in Texas" (Jeannie Heller and Jaslin Evette Smith); (7) "Applying Lessons Learned: Family-Centered, Interprofessional Education and Practice" (Bonnie Strickland); and (8) "Responses and Recommendations ('Recommendations for Practice' by Mary Skidmore Taylor; 'Family Response' by Betsy Anderson; 'Social Work Response' by Paula Allen-Mears; 'Health Response' by Tom Tonniges and Dianne Haas; and 'Education Response' by Dean Corrigan)."
