Quality Improvement Center for Family-Centered Reunification: How to Improve Services and Speed Reunification for Families

June 29 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm PDT

Join the Center on Children and the Law for the final webinar in a three-part series on Reunification. This final webinar will examine how the federal government is investing in reunification through the Quality Improvement Center for Family-Centered Reunification (QIC-R).

This webinar will provide an overview of the QIC-R and implementation sites located in Ohio, Kentucky, Montana, and New York. These QIC-R sites are developing interventions to improve services for families and decrease the timeframe to reunification.

HHS leadership will join the webinar to highlight the importance of focusing on reunification all year long in national policy and practice work.

This webinar is especially timely because on June 20, Congressional Black Caucus members introduced a Special Order highlighting the importance of National Reunification Month and focusing on the disproportionate separation of Black families by foster care and welfare services. The CBC called on our country to recognize the importance of keeping families together and the long-term benefits that come with stable family structures.
