Join us for a webinar to learn about the policies and practices to increase the number of kinship placements and better support families. We were joined by individuals from Los Angeles County who have been engaged in a successful pilot to recruit family to care for relatives. In addition, we heard from experts in Pennsylvania who have reformed their foster care system to be kin-first. These programs are on the cutting edge of transforming child welfare to be child-centered and family-friendly. Our panelists shared how their innovative programs can be replicated across the country.
We were joined by Judge Michael Nash (Ret.), Director of Los Angeles County’s Office of Child Protection, Jay Kadash, Stacy Johnson, and Yakiciwey Mitchell from A Second Chance, Inc., and Tiffany Collins and Jennifer Lopez with Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
