The Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Child Wel­fare Strat­e­gy Group (CWSG) recent­ly host­ed a webi­nar, Get­ting to Per­ma­nence: The Prac­tices of High-Per­form­ing Child Wel­fare Agen­cies, to high­light the impor­tance of pri­or­i­tiz­ing fam­i­ly rela­tion­ships and ensur­ing chil­dren and teens in fos­ter care have endur­ing con­nec­tions to lov­ing, nur­tur­ing adults in their lives. The webi­nar was the final install­ment in a three-part webi­nar series explor­ing key com­po­nents of Casey’s pub­li­ca­tion, 10 Prac­tices: A Child Wel­fare Leader’s Desk Guide to Build­ing a High-Per­form­ing Agency.”

The goal should be to pro­vide chil­dren in fos­ter care con­nec­tions to fam­i­ly – whether their own, fos­ter or adop­tive – that are safe and meant to last a life­time,” says Tracey Feild, man­ag­ing direc­tor of CWSG. It’s crit­i­cal to ensure life­long con­nec­tions to birth and extend­ed fam­i­ly, sib­lings, oth­er sig­nif­i­cant adults, fam­i­ly his­to­ry, race and eth­nic her­itage, cul­ture, reli­gion and language.”
