2018 Family First Kickoff Materials
On June 5, 2018 the NC Department of Health and Human Services partnered with Prevent Child Abuse NC, NC Child, and The Duke Endowment to co-host a kickoff informational session for the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA). This was an opportunity for over 200 community stakeholders to learn, ask questions and engage in the planning process of this legislation. FFPSA allows states to use existing federal funds in new ways to provide enhanced stability and services to prevent children from entering foster care. The FFPSA also has other important provisions that support the safety, permeance and well-being of children who do enter care, and restructures how their complex needs can be met.
