Real People, Real Stories: Engaging Families

A panel discussion about collaborative ways to help families and reduce child abuse and neglect. The panel will include two foster parents, two former foster youth, a staff member from Brightpaths - formerly Prevent Child Abuse Athens - and a staff member from the Department of Family and Children Services. Panelists will discuss their experiences in the child welfare system, what worked well, what might be done differently, and ways that families and service agencies can work in concert. After the discussion, panelists will answer questions from the audience.
