Webinar: Improving recruitment through post-placement support

DATE:
Feb 6

Child welfare systems need to find and maintain a strong pool of foster and adoptive families. One specific challenge they face is that prospective families may be wary of committing to fostering or adopting if they don’t have confidence that post-placement support services will be adequate, available, and helpful as parents seek to meet their children’s needs.

During this webinar, we will discuss how offering—and highlighting—post-placement support services can improve the effectiveness of recruitment efforts and ultimately contribute to the safety, permanency, and well-being of children. Presenters will examine the role that post-placement support can play in recruitment and offer concrete strategies to incorporate post-placement support services into your recruitment efforts.

Presenters:

  • Britt Cloudsdale, program coordinator of the Family Support team at AdoptUSKids
  • Alicia Groh, AdoptUSKids consultant

Audience: State, county, and tribal child welfare workers, supervisors, program managers, and administrators of public or private agencies that provide support services to foster and adoptive families.
