FIMR: A Decade of Lessons Learned

In order to understand some of the common elements that contribute to successful, long-term FIMR operation, we interviewed a sample of nine well-established programs from different parts of the country. We also chose programs with different start-up funding sources and a variety of lead agency sponsors.

In order to understand some of the common elements that contribute to successful, long-term FIMR operation, we interviewed a sample of nine well-established programs from different parts of the country. We also chose programs with different start-up funding sources and a variety of lead agency sponsors.

It is hoped that this document will provide insights that will help current FIMR programs across the country in their efforts to improve service systems ad resources for women, infant s and families, and sustain their programs over time. We also envision that this information will encourage more communities across the nation to move forward to adopt the action-oriented FIMR process. While FIMR involved time and effort, communities that take on this action-oriented process are generating better service systems and resources; member pride and satisfaction; and community-wide confidence in a better future.
