Save the date; Jan. 16 Child Welfare Summit sponsored by Cabinet for Health and Family Services

The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) will host the first-ever Child Welfare Summit at the University of Louisville Cardinal Stadium next month, and prospective participants should save the date.

Participants in the “Transformers of Child Welfare” event on Jan. 16, 2019, will focus on transforming child welfare in Kentucky, and leading the nation in implementing the Family First Prevention Services Act.

This inaugural event is open to anyone with an interest in helping improve Kentucky’s system of care for our kids, frontline staff, foster families and other partners.

The day will include experts from around the state and country from Casey Family Programs, Chapin Hall at University of Chicago, Kentucky Youth Advocates, University of Louisville, University of Kentucky, and many more.

Registration will be open soon and a schedule is forthcoming. Cost is only $20 and includes lunch. Join CHFS and its partners to make this first event an amazing time of shared vision and optimism for Kentucky’s families.

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services is home to most of the state’s human services and healthcare programs, including the Department for Medicaid Services, the Department for Community Based Services the Department for Public Health, and the Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities.

CHFS is one of the largest agencies in state government, with nearly 8,000 full- and part-time employees located across the Commonwealth focused on improving the lives and health of Kentuckians.
