The CWLA 2019 National Conference, Advancing Excellence in Practice & Policy: Meeting the Challenge of the Family First Prevention Services Act, will be held April 9-13, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. With the framework of the CWLA National Blueprint for Excellence in Child Welfare, this conference will highlight successful strategies and practices organizations and communities are using that can be leveraged to meet the challenges and opportunities of the Family First Prevention Services Act and help ensure that children and families flourish.

Both the CWLA National Blueprint and Family First Act are calling for a multi-system, community-based approach to protecting children and supporting families. The conference will feature evidence-informed/evidence-based programs and practices and their related policies and tools that will accomplish the goals of the Family First Act and lead to the successful implementation of the National Blueprint.

Session presentations will focus on effective strategies and practices to: strengthen families; implement a comprehensive array of services; transform residential care/treatment services; engage in successful collaborations with other related systems; refocus resources to respond to changes in service delivery; develop data/evaluation for programs to be well-supported, supported, or promising; and advance policies/funding to effectively implement the Family First Act.
