Synopsis: Systems of Hope, the Houston systems of care grant, stalled in stages of program installation and initial implementation. Staff selection and integration of family voice into board governance and structures were especially challenging. Systemic team development was successfully applied to refine grant goals, and establish related rules of operation to support collaborative assessment and planning that jump-started grant implementation. Our experience is not unique. Program installation and initial implementation demand greater attention in the literature.
