Addressing Issues Impacting Our Region’s Child Welfare System

Today the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency and the People’s Alliance for Justice formed a strategic partnership to take an immediate, collaborative, community-driven approach to address issues of disproportionality and disparities that have long impacted our region’s child welfare system. This new partnership will focus on engaging with families of color to empower more families to become foster parents and to strengthen and uplift our children and families involved with the child welfare system. Through a series of town hall meetings, we will be gathering community input and fostering a powerful community dialogue to explore new and innovative strategies to permanently eliminate the disproportionality that currently persists in our system of care.
