Request for input: ChildFocus wants to understand the key gaps that child welfare professionals have in connecting people to programs and services so it can build a more efficient and effective program registry/clearinghouse for front-line program worker. The survey is intended for individuals who refer services to individuals/families as a key part of their work or volunteer service, such as a social services manager, case manager, social worker, services coordinator, mentor/coach/facilitator, guardian ad litem/CASA, family court judge, lawyer, etc. The organization is providing an option to enter a drawing to win a $50 Amazon gift card once you complete the survey. Please complete the survey by Aug. 27. If you have any questions or feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to impact@standtogether.org.
