Now more than ever, it is critical that we are hearing from all members of our community. Untold numbers of families and individuals are struggling in silence amid the dueling crises of COVID-19 and racial injustice, and if we are to truly support them we must first make sure they have a seat at the table.

Family Voices United has developed a Constituent Engagement Assessment Tool Kit which features a self-assessment on readiness to engage constituents and best practices from FosterClub, Children’s Trust Fund Alliance, and Casey Family Programs.

Family Voices United is a joint undertaking by Casey Family Programs, FosterClub, Generations United, and The Children’s Trust Fund Alliance to elevate the voices and experiences of parents, relative caregivers and young people, transforming systems to support children and families to thrive.
