Survey Participants Needed
Most immigrant children and families reside in 6 states--California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, and Texas. Another 10--Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah--are emerging destinations for immigrant families.
To improve service delivery, the Migration and Child Welfare Network is surveying child welfare agencies in these destination states on their policies and practices regarding immigrant children and families. Results will be disseminated to provide child welfare agencies nationwide with examples of policies and practices that meet the needs of immigrant populations, as well as examples of challenges associated with serving this population.
If you are a child welfare administrator in one of these states, your participation in the survey is appreciated. E-mail Alan J. Dettlaff, University of Illinois at Chicago, firstname.lastname@example.org.
