The Impact of ASFA on Children and Families of Color
These forum excerpts focus on all aspects of the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 (ASFA). Finding common ground among diverse groups, the participants characterize the strengths and challenges of families and communities of color and explore the effects of ASFA on kinship care, adoption, and youth in care. First person experiences with the child welfare system are included, as well as extensive recommendations for improvement in child welfare policies, programs, and practices, especially as they affect children and families of color. Other related legislation is also examined.
