Expanding Role and Reach: A Community-Centered Child Welfare Response to COVID-19
Aug 6, 2020 1:30 pm EDT
Description

The legacy of the COVID-19 pandemic will be a significantly elevated need for core child welfare services over the months and years to come. COVID-19 has created a high degree of anxiety, stress, grief, and loss. It has reduced access to support networks at a time when families need them most. Public health measures like physical distancing and quarantine may be necessary, but their unwanted consequences - unemployment, financial and food insecurity, mental illness, family violence, and separation from family and culture - undermine child safety and well-being.
