Achieving the Family First Act’s Goals: A New Implementation Tool
"Given the intense emotional trauma associated with entering foster care, as well as the cost to both state and federal governments, there is great interest in identifying ways to promote family stability, reduce foster care entries and lengths of stay, and facilitate reunification and kinship placements."
– U.S. House of Representatives, Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) Legislative Report

This webinar will highlight how lawyers, judges, magistrates, court staff, and others can use the ABA Center on Children and the Law’s new publication – THE FAMILY FIRST PREVENTION SERVICES ACT OF 2018: A GUIDE FOR THE LEGAL COMMUNITY – to help achieve the Act’s main goals of promoting family stability, reducing foster care entries and lengths of stay, and facilitating reunification and kinship placements.

Join this webinar to learn how to use the FFPSA Legal Guide to:

• improve legal advocacy and judicial decision-making in cases involving prevention services, parental substance use, kin care, congregate placements, reunification services, and older youth

• leverage existing federal and state laws to complement FFPSA provisions

• advance legal community roles in FFPSA implementation

• engage with the ABA to support your jurisdiction’s FFPSA implementation efforts
