How to decipher the federal Family First Preservation and Services Act and its implications for child welfare providers
Together Georgia Provider Alliance in collaboration with The University of Georgia J. W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development offers the following trainingDecember 10, 2019 10am-2pm
Program Description: This 4-hour program will provide mid-level managers and supervisors with an understanding of how the federal government is seeking to improve child welfare outcomes through the Federal Family Preservation and Services Act (FFPSA). This session is specifically geared to the program and operations staff who have the experience and expertise to influence program approach and design within their agency, and the role that their agency plays in supporting children and families who come in contact with the child welfare system. We will discuss the values that the federal legislation places on establishing standards of good practice, implementing program models that have evidence to demonstrate their effectiveness, and keeping children in a family setting when out of home care is required, among others. Participants will be asked to reflect on these values and their consistency with their agency’s own values, leading to a discussion of how your agency evaluates risks and opportunities presented by public policies and funding.
