From the CEO: Family Seeing, Justice Doing & Dignity Giving

“It is time for all of us who work with these children and families [in the child welfare system] to embrace these gray areas, rather than keeping things black and white; welcome the ‘messiness’ of family dynamics; and dive in headfirst to the practices of engaging the family and supporters to build a true community of healing.” – Texas CASA CEO Vicki Spriggs

Our work with Collaborative Family Engagement has brought us to a realization: if those of us who work with children and families are to truly and meaningfully contribute to breaking the cycle of abuse and neglect, it will require a fundamental shift in the way we do business. Read the latest blog post from Texas CASA CEO Vicki Spriggs for her insight on this shift, how CASA and DFPS are working together to get us there, and what more needs to be done.
