The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion is host­ing a webi­nar on Wednes­day, March 2, 2022. The ses­sion explores how child wel­fare lead­ers can part­ner with fam­i­lies, pub­lic agen­cies, pri­vate foun­da­tions and non­prof­its to devel­op and fund approach­es that keep fam­i­lies sup­port­ed, con­nect­ed and safe — all while min­i­miz­ing their involve­ment with the child wel­fare system.

Dur­ing the webi­nar, Mar­garet Fly­nn-Khan of Main­spring Con­sult­ing will dis­cuss two new briefs from the Casey Foun­da­tion. The resources high­light key fund­ing streams and appli­ca­tion strate­gies and are based on inter­views with child wel­fare lead­ers and part­ners in six juris­dic­tions. Par­tic­i­pants will also hear from the Col­orado Depart­ment of Human Ser­vices’ Kendra Dunn, who will dis­cuss the efforts of statewide part­ner­ships to sup­port fam­i­lies in Colorado.

The ses­sion is part of Casey’s Lead­ing With Evi­dence webi­nar series, which exam­ines how lead­ers, researchers and pro­gram devel­op­ers can col­lab­o­rate to advance the use of evi­dence and, ulti­mate­ly, improve the lives of chil­dren, fam­i­lies and communities.
