A Discussion on Funding Strategies to Keep Families Supported, Connected and Safe
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.
Date and time: 2 p.m. ET, Wednesday, March 2, 2022
- Suzanne Barnard, moderator and director of the Casey Foundation’s Evidence-Based Practice Group
