In November and December we had the privilege to partner with Casey Family Programs to support their incredible work with schools and families working with foster youth. They work tirelessly to create a better future for our communities focusing on safe children, strong families and supportive communities.
Over one hundred family support workers, social workers, caregivers and supervisors joined us for a series of three online workshops. We collaborated to help them take their deep knowledge of trauma-responsive practices into the practical realities of the daily lives of the families and schools that they work with.
These deeply committed leaders were willing to play, try new things and explore practices to give youth more voice. They shared their wisdom with each other, and courageously engaged to question and challenge practices that perpetuate systems that are harmful to all of us.
We appreciate the commitment of Casey Family Program staff to continually learn so they can do a better job serving their families and youth. Thank you!
