Event description

Description

You have an opportunity to lead the nation through a new pilot program in our community. The Family First Initiative of Madison County will be launched September 25 with a meeting of Madison County Leaders to identify threats facing our at-risk families and to develop a strategy to attack those threats. Please join us for this important meeting September 25, 6:00 pm, Broadmoor Baptist Church. We welcome you to arrive at 5:30 pm for a reception including a light buffet and beverages.

The Family First Initiative of The Mississippi Supreme Court 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.*

We can better Mississippi Families together, one family at a time. Please RSVP through the above "REGISTER" button or to Cindy Cheeks at 601-383-3462 or ccheeks@courts.ms.gov.

We look forward to bettering Mississippi, together.

Sincerely,

Justice Dawn Beam, MS Supreme Court


*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.
