Is there an objective measure used in any/other jurisdictions that get us to the answer of the question "when is it safe to determine children can return home?" It there a strategy to involve community and judicial support to make this possible?
desi silva
01:02:05
Concomitantly, what is being strategized to move children out the system? Illinois has one of the longest lengths of stay.

Tierney - Does the data on the neglect only entries take into account siblings entering care with abuse allegations? I.e., are all the siblings neglect only, or does the data look at each child individually? Thank you.

These means are real prevention strategies. Family wellness is connected to community wellness and resource
Clare Anderson
01:38:51
Yes - the wealth gap is very real - Median income for white families is about $180k and about $25k for Black families. The median net worth of a young Black family is about $600.
Ashley Deckert

For more on KY Flex Funds, see this slide deck - the funding came from a legislative appropriation: https://www.chapinhall.org/wp-content/uploads/CWLA_Presentation_ECS_KY-FINAL.pdf
Danielle Gomez

How do the flex funding models like Kentucky's differ from Norman funding in IL?

Excellent forum and speakers.
Jaime Schmitz
02:00:29
What about the biases at play by workers who create those reports?
Brianna Johnson
02:00:51
this was very informative and thought provoking! lot's of hard work needed to be done to improve and change our systems and how they impact the families and children we work with.
Brianna Johnson
02:01:06
so true @Jamie S ….
Yeni Rojas
02:02:45
Great information, Thank you everyone
Jaime Schmitz
02:03:10
again... how can we better address implicit bias and/or the issue of the over-reporting of Black and brown families/the racial disproportionality that exists in child welfare today? (aside from anti-bias training requirements for workers) A lot of parents who are navigating the system do not need more services/parenting classes; they are great parents (per Rep Ammons personal example!).
Karina Meza
02:04:55
YES!!!
desi silva
02:05:01
That's exactly correct. The professionals involved are very involved in the decision. No one should deflect the ownness to get our kids home! we all own it!
Jenelle Birchlove
02:05:10
Yes! So much bias is in plain sight in families' service plans.
jackie sharp
02:05:13
So true
Karina Meza
02:05:27
No, let her speak!
Vernessa Gipson
02:05:50
judges do what the WORKER SAYS and the parents HAVE NO VOICE
Ashley Deckert
02:06:04
Folks want to hear from Vernessa, so if people want to stick around you can
Jenelle Birchlove
02:06:05
That's right, Vanessa.
Jenelle Birchlove

Kathy Grzelak

yes, it needs to be family focused.
Jenny Logan
02:06:32
Thank you so much! This was great!
Carol Ammons
02:06:43
Severin, Thanks for being here. At some point, we have to be truthful about this system and redesign it.

Karina Meza

I was a therapist with an agency and I always shared my reports because everyone else refused to shared them and my parents would go into court not knowing anything about their own case
Karina Meza

Thank you!
