Description: 

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Corporation for Supportive Housing invite you to a webinar releasing exciting evaluative data from the Keeping Families Together pilot program.

The Keeping Families Together pilot program was designed to answer the question: “With the right combination of affordable housing and supportive services, can highly vulnerable families provide a stable, healthy environment for their children, thus preventing child welfare involvement?” Between October 2007 and July 2009, 29 New York City families participated in the program. These families all had significant, sometimes intergenerational, histories of chronic homelessness, child welfare involvement, substance abuse or mental illness, interpersonal violence and trauma.  Evaluation results show that the Keeping Families Together pilot program holds real promise through a holistic approach to affordable housing and services that preserves families experiencing serious challenges. The pilot shows that we can bring families back from the brink of major crisis and reduce the cycle of homelessness and involvement with child welfare and other agencies.

Date: Wednesday, February 2, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. (EST) /11:00 (PST)

What you will learn:
• The importance of connectivity in helping vulnerable families-specifically the impact of supportive housing on families who are chronically homeless and involved with child welfare.
• Overview of the Keeping Families Together model-a practical approach that holds significant promise for preserving vulnerable families and improving their health.
• Results from the Metis Associates evaluation on the Keeping Families Together pilot program.
Speakers will include:
• Nancy Barrand, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
• Connie Temple, Corporation for Supportive Housing
• Richard Cho, Corporation for Supportive Housing
• Alison Harte, Corporation for Supportive Housing, Keeping Families Together
• Metis Associates
• Eric Nicklas, Forestdale, Inc. (formerly of NYC Administration for Children's Services)

The public understanding of sexual violence, domestic violence and teen dating violence has shifted over time. For effective prevention messages, we need to understand the current views about this issues. This web conference will highlight the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s (NSVRC) work with the FrameWorks Institute to research how the general public in the United States thinks about sexual violence and its prevention. The first phase of this recently-released study is already providing some fascinating insights that have implications for our communication strategies. This web conference will explore highlights from the research that compares experts’ knowledge of sexual violence with the general public’s understanding.

Some specific areas covered include: What is sexual violence? What is the cause? Who perpetrates sexual violence and why? Who are the victims? Is sexual violence preventable? Participants will discuss implications for prevention, policy, and communications and will learn what additional information will be coming in future phases of this ground-breaking research.
