Welcome Everyone!

ZiaPartners, Inc. (founded in 2006 by Dr. Chris Cline and Dr. Ken Minkoff) is a health and human services consulting firm specializing in welcoming systems and services for individuals and families with complex needs. These challenges for people come in many forms–emotional, mental and physical health conditions, substance use issues, as well as trauma, social distress, lack of supports and other life domains such as housing and homelessness, education, criminal justice, and employment. We work with our customers to create exceptional integrated systems of care serving highly impacted children, youth, adults and families. 

One of the frameworks for change that we employ is the Comprehensive Continuous Integrated System of Care or CCISC.  It is an evidence-based model (Minkoff & Cline, 2004, 2005) that has been identified by SAMHSA as a “best practice” for system design, and has been used in dozens of local, regional, state/provincial systems of care internationally, including over 35 states in the U.S., 5 Canadian provinces, and several states in Australia. CCISC is designed to create processes for systems to engage in to produce vision-driven transformation–a customer-oriented quality improvement approach to change.

Our mission is to “change the world” for individuals and families with complex needs. Through partnership we strive to transform every process, program, policy, procedure, practice, piece of paperwork, every person providing help and every penny that we have to better reflect the hopes of those who need us and the values that brought us here in the first place.

Thank you for coming!  You are in the right place.  We really look forward to getting to know you.
