This webinar is hosted by Child Welfare League of America

To help families thrive we must address the intersectional barriers of extreme poverty, disparities in health and disabilities, and systemic racism. The COVID-19 crisis alongside a rising up against the long history of racism in America has created a much-needed opportunity to fundamentally shift the way we support families and work to keep them together while helping them to meet their needs and thrive. One Roof is the collaborative national effort advancing housing solutions designed to keep or reunify families safely together and stabilized in their own homes with access to services. This approach employs a prevention model, when possible, and empowers families by combining the stability of a home with intense case management and cross sector services. This session will highlight components of this approach, with specific local examples and strategies related to the ongoing pandemic and long-standing racial disparities, which supports reimagining of a more equitable child welfare and community response. Being able to identify families that are struggling to access or maintain housing is critical to family stability and even more now, to their health.
