Upcoming Events

January 26, 2023
  • Webinar: Strengthening Child Protection and County Jails Partnerships to Support Children with an Incarcerated Parent January 26, 2023  10:00 am - 12:00 pm


    This presentation will provide an overview of the Child Protection/Child Welfare System. When parents are incarcerated, the children of these parents will face difficult situations. One of the most important consequences that children of incarcerated parents suffer is the disruption of parent and child attachment. The incarceration of parents creates significant burdens for the families. This is especially true for already vulnerable families.

    Social workers and other staff from Stearns County's Human Services–Family and Children Services Division will discuss the intersections of the Child Protection/ Child Welfare System and the criminal justice systems. All system partners play an important role when families and children are being served. Hosted by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Center.

    Co-sponsored by the Center for MCH. Hosted by MDH.
