Please join us on June 5, 2018 for a briefing and discussion on the historic federal child welfare legislation passed by Congress earlier this year. The law creates new opportunities for using federal funds for family services to prevent children from entering foster care, and other provisions that promote child safety, permanence and well-being.
Join us to find out more about what this could mean for families and providers in North Carolina.
