An Integrated Approach:
Investing in Whole Person Approaches
to Child and Family Well-being

Thursday, April 8, 2021
11 AM – 12:30 PM, Central Standard Time

Children do best when maintained safely with family in their own homes. Supporting the holistic needs of children and families is a community effort, requiring strong partnerships among many stakeholders. Most children in the foster care system are enrolled in Medicaid, leading to clear opportunities for cross-sector collaboration. 

The 2018 Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) represents the most significant child welfare reform in over two decades focusing programs and resources toward prevention. Coordination between Child Welfare Agencies, Medicaid, and Community-Based Organizations can support successful development of a prevention-focused ecosystem that ensures child and family needs are met. 

Join us in our upcoming webinar as we discuss what FFPSA will mean for states, how this will affect organizations across the country, explore innovative strategies to address needs upstream, and what you can do to prepare for the October 1 change.

If you cannot attend the webinar but are interested in learning more about our platform, please schedule a demo.

About Aunt Bertha

Aunt Bertha’s network connects people seeking help and verified social care providers that serve them.

Thousands of nonprofits and social care providers serve their communities. But for most people, navigating the system to get help has been difficult, time consuming, and frustrating. Too many Americans are suffering, and they don’t need to.

So at Aunt Bertha, we created a social care network that connects people and programs — making it easy for people to find social services in their communities, for nonprofits to coordinate their efforts, and for customers to integrate social care into the work they already do.
