Webinar Examines Strategies to Keep Families Supported, Connected and Safe
A new Annie E. Casey Foundation webinar recording explores funding streams and strategies that child welfare leaders can leverage to support families before they cross paths with the child welfare system.
The session, “Funding Strategies to Keep Families Supported, Connected and Safe,” highlights how leaders can collaborate with community organizations and across government systems. It echoes the information presented in a pair of briefs from the Foundation — one that examines key funding streams to keep families supported, connected and safe and another that shares six strategies jurisdictions have used to deploy funding to support families.
The Casey Foundation’s Suzanne Barnard moderates the webinar. Guests include Margaret Flynn-Khan — who wrote both briefs — plus two Colorado officials with firsthand experience in building funding mechanisms to support families.
These panelists are:
- Suzanne Barnard, director of Casey’s Evidence-Based Practice Group, moderator
- Margaret Flynn-Khan, partner at Mainspring Consulting
- Kendra Dunn, director of the Division of Community and Family Support within the Colorado Department of Human Services
- Dan Makelky, director of Colorado’s Douglas County Department of Human Services
