Redesigning Child Welfare Around Prevention, Equity and Well-Being: Part 1
April 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PDT
A growing body of evidence supports a rethinking of prevention services to include the use of economic and concrete supports with families. An overview of the science of economic and concrete supports and the associations with reductions in child welfare system involvement will be provided. Redesigning child welfare, and the long-held separation of economic and concrete supports from services in child protective services and foster care, requires new mindsets, partnerships and policies. This is also a consideration as it relates to race equity as families of color experience disproportionate economic hardship and disproportionate involvement with CPS. Federal and state policy considerations and examples will be presented for exploration.
