the Juvenile and Child Welfare Section Council at this free, open
“Design and Implementation of New Service System
for Children Requiring Assistance
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.
