How have people engaged their local DSS offices into their collective impact initiatives? We already have a relationship but are looking for innovative ways to work with them. One key problem is helping them with their point of contact with people.

Interesting question, Dylan. One question for clarification, when you say helping them with their point of contact, do you mean helping them establish a way for people to contact them?
