The Alliance for Strong Families and Communities, in partnership with the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA) and the National Organization of State Associations for Children (NOSAC) – also known as The Triad – officially launched the Keeping Kids in Families campaign! The campaign is designed to equip agencies and advocates with the ability to build a sense of urgency among members of Congress to enact federal child welfare finance reform. The Michigan Federation for Children and Families is the official point of contact for Michigan for the federal advocacy efforts coordinated by The Triad.
You can view the official launch message, and sign up to be a part of the campaign by visiting: http://keepingkidsinfamilies.org. At this website you will see more information about what The Triad proposes as solutions to the need for finance reform and an advocacy toolkit with materials designed to help you reach out to elected officials. Keeping Kids in Families is helping to develop and support policy solutions that help to strengthen our nation’s child welfare system through investments in prevention, early interventions and treatments that keep children safe and in permanent families whenever possible.
