Integrating Public Child Welfare Practice Using the Community Child Protection and Family to Family Approaches (Workshop 121)
Kentucky's Jefferson County child protection agency uses the approaches of the Annie E. Casey Foundation's Family to Family Initiative, the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, and the Center for Community Partnerships in Child Welfare to develop innovative neighborhood strategies to keep children safe and to creatively recruit and train foster and adoptive parents. Participants in this workshop session learn the key principles, values, and outcomes of comprehensive family services, community child protection, and family to family programming as well as the key strategies for prevention and early intervention. Additionally, the session explores Jefferson County's decentralized approach to public sector service provision consisting of eight Neighborhood Places.
