Children First Forum

May 21st, 2019

Thinking Outside the Box

The Children First Forum creates a space for leadership, wellness committee reps and grandmothers to discuss the way forward to better support and guide our children and families.  The Child & Family Team will have an opportunity to share the proposed nation child and family plan and receive feedback and acceptance.

Cindy Blackstock will be our keynote speaker.  She will introduce the new legislation and its pros/cons in regards to child welfare legislation and how to navigate the pitfalls that other nations have faced in regards to short term and non-existent funding. The hoped for outcome of this event will be the creation of innovative and proven techniques and a common strategy within our nation to better support our children and families’ needs.
