Virtual town hall meeting about foster care system
By Jamie Neal
Frankfort, KY - The public is invited to virtual town hall meetings to discuss improving outcomes for Kentucky children and families involved in the state foster care system. Citizen Foster Care Review Boards are hosting eight regional meetings between July 20-31. Registration is required.
There is a meeting from 10:30amCT to NoonCT today, Thursday, July 23, 2020, for citizens residing in Adair, Bell, Casey, Clay, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Harlan, Jackson, Knox, Laurel, Leslie, Marion, McCreary, Monroe, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Russell, Taylor, Washington, Wayne and Whitley counties.
Participants should attend the meeting in the region in which they reside and must register for the meeting here: eventbrite.com.
The forums are among the reforms called for in House Bill 1, which was passed in 2018 to address issues with foster care and adoption. The legislation requires CFCRBs to offer regional forums at least twice a year to get public input on the foster care system.
In addition to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the child welfare system, discussions at the virtual meetings will focus on local services, child safety and well-being and barriers to placing children in permanent homes. Specific case information will not be discussed due to confidentiality.
Individuals who are unable to attend a virtual meeting may complete a survey here: kyaoc.formstack.com.
Feedback from the meetings will be reported to the Kentucky CFCRB and will be included in the board's annual recommendations to the governor, legislature and Supreme Court of Kentucky.
Questions and comments should be emailed to the Kentucky CFCRB at firstname.lastname@example.org.
