WEBINAR – NEW JERSEY’S FAMILY FIRST PREVENTION PLAN
DCF and Advocates for Children of New Jersey invite you to a webinar about NJ’s Family First prevention plan.
Giving Every Child a Chance to Grow Up Safe, Healthy and Educated
Join Advocates for Children of New Jersey and the New Jersey Department of Children and Families on Thursday, December 15th, 3:00 PM, for a webinar exploring the federal Family First Prevention Services Act and New Jersey’s prevention plan. What It’s About:
In 2018, the federal government enacted the Family First Prevention Services Act to begin to shift federal support for child- and family-serving systems towards proactive, prevention-oriented services and supports which are available to all families, regardless of their status within their jurisdiction’s child protective services agency. New Jersey has long been a leader in prevention-oriented programming, and we now have an opportunity to connect our efforts to federal funding and support. We are working towards submitting New Jersey’s Family First 5-year prevention plan to the federal government by the end of January 2023.
