Improving Transition Strategies for Young Parents Aging Out of Foster Care
September 30, 2020
This webinar highlights insights on what “meaningful” and “authentic” parent engagement looks like and the process used to engage young parents via (remote) focus groups, featuring speakers from the Georgia Division of Family & Children Services (DFCS). DFCS will also share examples of their efforts to engage these young parents to better understand how to design programs (or align existing efforts) to support their needs through strategic coordination between child welfare agencies and the Office of Family Independence. Tune in to learn about how they are shaping their efforts to better support young parents through their work in Southeastern Cohort. The webinar also features guest speaker Mary Nelson, Senior Director at the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA).
