Reimagining Child Welfare: A Networked Approach to Family Well-Being
Establishing strong support systems from the start can set children and families up for long-term success. Directly impacting the lives of approximately four million children in the United States under age 18, the child welfare system has a tremendous opportunity to provide families with these needed supports. Leveraging this opportunity, however, requires fundamental shifts in how and when supports are offered to ensure that they are equitable, appropriate, and addressing root causes of adversity before they occur — especially for families with low incomes and those from Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other communities of color.
The right people.
The right time.
The right conversation.
