Thinking about sustainability is important from the beginning and throughout the implementation stages. From the beginning, the exploration of various approaches should consider what it will cost in fiscal, human and material resources to sustain an approach. After implementation is underway, building ways to continually check fidelity and success in achieving results with children and families must be built into on-going monitoring and quality assurance procedures. Most important, keeping track of progress, sharing successes, keeping champions (spokespersons and advocates) active and stakeholders aware and involved will keep on-going implementation a priority, rather than allowing shift from fidelity.
