US: New family first bill first step toward 21st Century child welfare system (Opinion)
The Hill – July 14, 2016
We have a very small window of immense opportunity in our country and I am afraid it might close on us soon if we don’t take action now. My current organization, The Alliance for Strong Families and Communities, is a strong proponent of passage of the Family First Prevention Services Act of 2016 that represents a once-in-a-career opportunity to see our nation’s child welfare system become more preventative and family focused — something we have all long dreamed of.
