Across a ten-year span, Washington, D.C. reduced the number of children and youth in care from more than 3,000 to 750. The District's Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA) focus on community partnerships is a key element of Washington, D.C.'s Title IV-E prevention plan, which was approved by the Children's Bureau (CB) in 2019. The city was the first jurisdiction in the U.S. to submit its plan to CB. This podcast provides the historical background, strategies, and guidance CFSA applied in developing their prevention plan. The information shared may be helpful for jurisdictions developing prevention plans to implement the Federal Family First, which expands prevention services to help stabilize and strengthen families.
