Request for Proposals | Backbone Organization
Imagine parents of babies looking forward to visits to the pediatrician. In addition to tracking the baby’s growth and development, the pediatrician's office would be the place to gain the kind of support that helps parents develop a healthy, nurturing relationship with their children, supporting both the parent’s and baby’s overall social and emotional well-being.
This is the vision of Pediatrics Supporting Parents (PSP). To make this vision a reality for every family in the United States, PSP is working directly with five Proof Point Communities across four states to fundamentally and sustainably transform pediatric practice to improve family and child outcomes by focusing on the social and emotional development of the child and the early relational health inside the family.
We are seeking proposals from qualified organizations interested in serving as the Backbone Organization for Pediatrics Supporting Parents, beginning July 1, 2023 for a 3 year period, 2023 to 2025.
Applications are due by email submission to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 pm PDT, Monday, May 8, 2023.
