Our mission is about strengthening families. To achieve this, we do all we can to continuously improve the quality of all our services throughout TFI Family Connections.
Quality improvement allows TFI to facilitate internal reviews of program and administrative departments. These reviews help us design training and education programs for staff and retain a focus on program outcomes through a continuous quality improvement process. Management of reviews, reporting of audits and program improvement plans help TFI and its companies build upon success and identify needs early.
Within TFI quality improvement, we monitor child placing licenses for all companies, coordinate with external agencies on compliance and provide a structure for quality improvement activities in programs. Some pieces inside the quality improvement program include organizing and assembling provider meetings with stakeholders, managing the client satisfaction survey process, discussing contract issues, outcomes and quality of services and providing reports on agency compliance.
In addition, quality improvement coordinates regulatory agency audits from Council on Accreditation, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Department of Children and Family, Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services and other child welfare community-based service providers.
TFI Family Connections, Inc. strives to protect the privacy and safety of all families with which we work. To aid in this, we use stock photos to represent children and family clients. Outside of select stories provided with consent of past clients, stories shared are representative of the work we do and the impact of that work; but names, specific details and other identifying aspects of such client stories are changed to protect privacy and safety.
