To holistically support children and their families with low incomes, many states and local organizations coordinate early care and education (ECE) services with the provision of other health and human services. This coordination relies on partnerships. This brief describes findings from semi-structured telephone interviews with leaders from 18 coordinated services approaches that were included in the Assessing Models of Coordinated Services (AMCS) study. These interviews—conducted between July and September 2020—built on AMCS’s national scan and provided in-depth information about how coordinated services approaches serve children and their families. In this brief, we highlight key themes identified in the interviews about coordination and partnerships and provide examples from specific coordinated services approaches.
