In recent years, there has been a surge in local communities across the country passing ballot measures in order to expand access to child care and early learning opportunities for young kids. Experts attribute this trend in part to the impact the lack of child care had on the economy at the start of the pandemic, when many parents had to miss work because they didn’t have anyone to watch their children.

    Earlier this week, the Casey team participated in our 10th annual Community Day! This Foundation-wide day of service is a chance for staff to make a hands-on contribution to our mission. Members of the Casey team are pictured here at Second Chance, Inc., where they helped remove nails from doors and measure kitchen cabinets. Project sites included City of Refuge, Old York Community Park, and other local organizations making a positive impact in the Baltimore area.

    For Child Abuse Prevention Month, our president and CEO Lisa Hamilton sat down with Dr. Melissa Merrick of Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA) to explore the question of what could be done to better support families before they enter the child welfare system. Although the majority of children in foster care are there as a result of neglect, child welfare systems tend to focus more on how to respond after neglect has occurred rather than exploring interventions to prevent the circ*mstances that lead to neglect in the first place.“We know neglect is defined dif­fer­ent­ly across states, but it real­ly typ­i­cal­ly applies to a lack of basic needs, every­thing from hous­ing to child care to cloth­ing,” explained Hamil­ton during the conversation. “All of the things we know low-income fam­i­lies are strug­gling with.” Check out PCAA’s new podcast series to hear the full conversation between Lisa Hamilton and Dr. Melissa Merrick!

    We’re proud to support the efforts of Voices for Virginia's Children, one of the organizations whose advocacy was key to making this change possible.

    Amidst the current shortage of child psychiatrists and psychologists, many families whose children are struggling with behavioral health issues have found themselves with nowhere to turn for assistance. The Yale Child Study Center Medical-Legal partnership is working to change this by bringing together clinicians and lawyers to assist families in advocating for their child to access the kinds of resources and services that can better support their behavioral health.

    As more youth struggle with behavior and traditional supports fall short, clinicians are partnering with lawyers to help - The Hechinger Report http://hechingerreport.org

    We’re proud to announce that last month, Kansas became the first U.S. state to create a SOUL Family legal permanency option for foster kids — a framework that was initially conceived by our very own Jim Casey Fellows back in 2018! The SOUL Family law allows older youth in foster care to establish lasting and legally-recognized bonds with trusted adult caregivers while also remaining legally connected to their family of origin.As Kansas DCF Secretary Laura Howard explains it, “now Kansans ages 16 and old­er who are leav­ing fos­ter care will be empow­ered to choose who will join them on their jour­ney as they grow into the next phase of their lives, fin­ish school­ing, set­tle into jobs and become adult mem­bers of their greater com­mu­ni­ty.”
