Provide children and families with the upfront supports and
services they need to prevent them from entering the child
welfare system, and/or limit their involvement with the system
once they are known to it.
Early Prevention: Ensure that families are provided with an array
of upfront supports within their own communities to minimize
their chances of entering the child welfare system and maximize
their chances of living healthy and stable lives.
Continuum of Care: Create a structure that promotes good communication
and coordination of services across entities assisting children and
families once they become known to the child protection system.
