Strengthening Permanency Outcomes through Cross-Agency Collaboration

The Massachusetts Permanency Practice Alliance joins four residential care providers with the goal of creating a pathway to permanence that enables every child to stay home, go home, or find home. Workshop participants will learn about our process to collectively engage in permanency practices, advocacy, and outcome evaluation.
