National CASA Webinar: Family First: Implementation Updates and Emerging Considerations
March 31 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
This webinar will explore the current state of Family First implementation related to prevention services. Family First remains the most important transformative child welfare policy of the 21st century. Approximately 20 Prevention Plans have been approved to date with a similar number submitted awaiting approval. Implementation varies across the country though several themes are emerging related to innovations and challenges. An overview of the services being provided, the infrastructure being developed, and the innovations and challenges will be discussed. Considerations related to prevention via community pathways, race equity, and economic and concrete supports will be discussed. Also on the presentation panel will be staff from the CASA/GAL Network to share their experiences with Family First implementation in their state as a core strategy to prevent child abuse and neglect and entry into foster care.
