"COLOR OF CHILD WELFARE CONFERENCE"
In the spirit of Harambee (pulling together), Fresh Start Family Services and our community partners will like to warmly invite Wisconsin's Dept. of Children & Families, child and family-serving organizations, and providers to the Color of Child Welfare Conference 2020. This year's theme is
“Healthy Black Families + Healthy Black Villages = Healthy Black Children”.
The C.O.C.W. is the only conference in the state of Wisconsin that convenes to extensively focus on and discuss the needs of Black children in Wisconsin's foster care and juvenile justice systems. This conference includes a full spectrum of disciplines and organizations serving Wisconsin's children and families which includes child advocacy, juvenile justice, social service, education, legal counsel and the faith-based community. The conference provides a forum to improve competencies, learn from experts in the field and network with other professionals who have a wealth of experience. It is our hope that you will find the program to be an excellent professional development experience. There is an opportunity for social workers, psychologists, therapists, licensed professional counselors, and peer counselors to earn up to 7.0 CEHs.
