Every kid needs a fam­i­ly — which is why child wel­fare case­work should focus on fam­i­ly rela­tion­ships and per­ma­nence. In Casey’s pub­li­ca­tion, A Child Wel­fare Leader’s Desk Guide To Build­ing a High-Per­form­ing Agency, the most effec­tive agen­cies estab­lish prac­tices that make fam­i­ly rela­tion­ships and per­ma­nence the focus of their casework.

To learn how local agen­cies can imple­ment high-per­form­ing prac­tices, reg­is­ter for the webi­nar, Get­ting to Per­ma­nence: The Prac­tices of High-Per­form­ing Child Wel­fare Agen­cies, sched­uled from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. EST, July 192016

The webi­nar — cre­at­ed to sup­port agency staff, advo­cates, com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers, the legal com­mu­ni­ty, data ana­lysts and providers — focus­es on the impor­tance of per­ma­nence, includ­ing for teens; cur­rent per­ma­nen­cy out­comes and indi­ca­tors; what dri­ves per­ma­nence; and, strate­gies to boost permanence. 

The fol­low­ing mem­bers of Casey’s Child Wel­fare Strat­e­gy Group will share their knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence with webi­nar attendees:

  • Tracey Feild, Man­ag­ing Director
  • Evette Jack­son, Senior Associate
  • Chris Behan, Senior Associate
  • Elisha Gilliam, Senior Associate
  • Moderator/​Host: Mor­gan Cole, Pro­gram Associate 

The Get­ting to Per­ma­nence webi­nar is a com­pan­ion resource to A Child Wel­fare Leader’s Desk Guide to Build­ing a High-Per­form­ing Agency. The report pro­vides approach­es agen­cies can imple­ment to pro­vide chil­dren with sta­ble rela­tion­ships and liv­ing sit­u­a­tions. It lists incen­tives, poli­cies and prac­tices to ensure chil­dren grow up in a fam­i­ly and achieve per­ma­nence quickly.
