Event Details

You have an opportunity to lead the nation through a new pilot program in our community. The Family First Initiative aims to prevent Mississippi’s children from ever entering the foster care system by utilizing a comprehensive, multi-generational plan which addresses the safety and stability of our families. This approach will serve as a model to implement the federal Family First Prevention Services Act.*

In order to carry out this plan in our community, we must establish an Advisory Council to identify threats facing our at-risk families and to develop a strategy to attack those threats. Please join us for this important meeting August 30th at 5:30 pm at MS Gulf Coast Community College - Gautier Campus in the Cafeteria. You can find a map of the campus can be found here: Building 11 on this Map click here

*In February 2018, the FFPSA restructured federal reimbursement of child welfare financing streams. The new law changes priorities for the country and Mississippi by providing services to the whole family in an effort to prevent unnecessary child removal. The hope is to equip families to raise their own children and to give those children safe, stable homes. To achieve this, Mississippi will unify resources across party, racial, and denominational lines in order to provide access to mental health services, substance use treatment, in-home parenting skills training, and the like.
