How to get Handle with Care Started in my County

The Handle With Care Implementation Guide was developed for communities interested in implementing the Handle With Care Model. The guide includes a description of the Handle With Care Model; the required model components; a step by step guide for planning and implementing the initiative; and other resources. The guide is not a “one size fits all” approach but rather a menu of options that can be used to fit the circumstances of the diverse communities across the state. It highlights basic program requirements as well as variations in program implementation that reflect the differences among Michigan communities. The guide is meant to serve as a template for communities as they determine the best approach for implementing their own Handle With Care initiative.
