ICOY Child Welfare Coalition Call

November 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


Join ICOY, Lutheran Child and Family Services (LCFS) and Lutheran Social Service of Illinois (LSSI) as we collaborate on a discussion and initiative that we will be rolling out called ‘Our Side of the Street’: A Focused Discussion on Addressing Racial Disparities in POS Agencies. This discussion will take place during our standing Child Welfare Coalition Call on Friday, November 18th from 11-12:30pm.

Please plan for our presenters Beverly Jones, Ruth Jajko and Jere Murray to cover steps that they have begun to take and ways that we, as POS providers, can address racial disparities within our respective agencies. This discussion is also the space to provide any updates on your journey related to addressing trends you have observed and the necessary changes made to your agency’s practices and methods of providing services. The goal is to develop a peer-to-peer accountability and sharing model through workgroup meetings, data sharing and other ideas around how to help rebuild our child welfare and youth-led systems for youth and families in IL.
