Project ONE: Spotlight on the Inaugural All-Sites Meeting

October 15, 2014


This brief serves as a summary of a foundational event in the life of the Project ONE initiative—the All- Sites meeting held in Reno, Nev. May 2014. The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) developed Project ONE as a groundbreaking effort designed to transform the various courts that serve youth and families into more unified courts that are better situated to serve the needs of families. A pilot project—identifying six courts from around the United States—is enabling these sites to take bold steps toward more unified courts that provide better-coordinated services for families. These six sites, with training and technical support from NCJFCJ and from each other, are helping to clarify for courts how to move more effectively toward a unified court model. The May 2014 meeting of teams from the six sites proved as enlightening to the sites as it did to the national movement to advance this concept.
