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
