What Child Welfare Agencies Can Do to Support Reunification: Parent Partnerships and Reunification Practices
HOSTED BY: ABA
The relationship between resource/foster caregivers and parents whose children are in foster care can be one of the most impactful connections to supporting reunification. Resource caregivers play a critical role in supporting family time and maintaining children’s connections to family. What is the role of Child Welfare agencies in supporting this connection? Please join us as we explore this role and offer concrete ways Child Welfare agencies can be a partner in supporting reunification through this relationship and other practices. Oregon Department of Human Services and Georgia Department of Human Services will offer tips not only from the agency’s perspective but also from the perspective of parents and resource caregivers in partnership with Rise, a parent-led NYC-based advocacy organization. Participants will hear personal perspectives from parents who have been impacted by the child welfare system and will leave with practical tips for how agencies can support families in achieving reunification from the moment a child is placed into care.
