COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the way that child protection traditionally operates and required agencies to work differently. It offers an unprecedented opportunity to reset child protection to focus on what is most important: keeping families together in their communities whenever possible with the resources and supports they need to keep their children safe. COVID-19 can be a catalyst to boldly reimagine child protection at its core and use the lessons learned from these new approaches to provide a path forward beyond the current public health crisis.

The resources on this page feature strategies that hold promise to support a transformed 21st century child and family well-being system.
