A Vision for Eliminating Poverty and Family Violence: Transforming Child Welfare and TANF (Workshop 52B)
The TANF program in El Paso County, Colorado defines itself as the primary prevention and early intervention system for child abuse and neglect. The child welfare programs have been re-engineered to become an anti-poverty system. The department integrates its functions to provide seamless, family-centered services regardless of how families begin their involvement. This workshop explores the leadership philosophy and strategies for implementing this bold vision.
