Many iterations were explored during the model development stages.
This model operates similarly to a medical walk-in clinic, bringing together those seeking support (community agencies) with "experts".
This model uses the "what bubbles up" approach to harness ideas that come from the community.
The Agency Exchange facilitates dialogue within the community using an online platform.
This model puts conferences, workshops and mentoring programs at the heart of its community engagement.
This model creates advisory panels composed of community members to inform the Region on processes and policy decisions.

2. Develop a recommended organizational model centered on community empowerment
