Developing a Trauma-Informed Roadmap to Prevent Juvenile Justice Involvement of Child Welfare Youth: A Moral and Fiscal Imperative

April 30th, 2018 • Washington, DC

The goal of this national, invite-only convening is to bring together advocates, thought leaders, and other partners from across the country to lay the foundation for the development of an effective and implementable roadmap to improve outcomes for dual status youth — youth who come into contact with both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. This is an opportunity for a robust solutions-oriented dialogue, out of which we seek to create a roadmap for policymakers, local jurisdictions, youth-serving systems and other stakeholders seeking to enhance cross-sector coordination and collaboration; integrate coordinated trauma-informed systems-of-care; and leverage technology and innovation to ensure that youth are safe, healthy, and thriving.
