April 2016Vol. 17, No. 2Statewide Systems Reform Program Webinar

Last fall, Children and Family Futures hosted a webinar by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's (OJJDP's) Statewide Systems Reform Program, a 3-year program to help five States expand the scale of their local family drug courts to serve a larger portion of the child welfare population. The webinar, titled "Leading Systems Change Through Expansion and Infusion," describes the program's goals, planning and implementation stages, and lessons learned, as well as the following topics:

  • Barriers of taking family drug courts to scale and the solutions underway at the State level to overcome those barriers
  • Opportunities of the infusion approach and the strategies undertaken by State leaders to change the larger child welfare systems
  • Utilization of a Change Leader as part of the technical assistance provided to each of the awarded States to implement their strategic plan
