Juvenile and Child Welfare Section Council meeting

 Join the Juvenile and Child Welfare Section Council at this free, open meeting.

 “Design and Implementation of New Service System

for Children Requiring Assistance (CRA)”

 

Guest Speaker: Glenn Daly, Director, Office of Children, Youth and Family Programs, EOHHS.  Daly will discuss the status of the new service system, and specifically the Family Resource Centers, that the Commonwealth is in the process of designing for youth who are “Children Requiring Assistance” (CRA) under Chapter 240 of the Acts of 2012. 

 

This law, which replaced the old CHINS statute, requires that youth identified as CRA and their families be provided with appropriate services to divert them from poor outcomes.  EOHHS, in consultation with the Family and Children Requiring Assistance Advisory Board established by the law, is working to comply with the legislature’s mandate that a statewide pilot program be implemented by November 5, 2014.

 

Glenn Daly from EOHHS will present at the Juvenile and Child Welfare Section Council meeting on the work to date, and take questions from those who attend the meeting.
