Pathways to Partnership: Alternative Response, Domestic Violence, and the Signs of Safety Child Protection Framework (Workshop 61)
To improve the safety and well-being of at-risk children and their families, a public-private partnership was formed between county child and family services and the nonprofit family service agency. The workshop describes "Family Partners," an alternative response program for families with valid child maltreatment reports, which require agency intervention. Presenters outline the program and provide outcome data for a four-year period in which 2,000 families accepted the alternative service.
