Foster Kids Count Teleconference

11/4/2003:   Every day, decisionmakers in each state must consider the interaction between a child's needs, the family's and foster family's capabilities, system functions, and policies and practices.

On November 18, from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M., a live teleconference will take a closer look at the Foster Care Census of Kentucky, which was designed to verify the placement of every child in the state system and evaluate the interaction of these components on child well-being.

During this free teleconference, speakers will describe the census effort, disseminate key findings, and provide a forum to explore the policies and practices necessary to ensure a higher rate of adult success among children in care.

Guests will include representatives from the Children's Bureau, Kentucky Cabinet for Families and Children, the U.S. Census Bureau, and CWLA.

If you would like to hear what these organizations learned from the process, visit www.trc.eku.edu/fostercare to sign up for the teleconference or get more information.
