REGIONAL: DHHS seeks public input at child welfare listening session

RALEIGH — The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Social Services is seeking public input at a listening session on Wednesday in Salisbury on how child welfare services can be improved.

While comments will be accepted on any area relevant to child welfare, DHHS is particularly interested in hearing ideas for:
Improving safety, permanency and well-being outcomes
Services for high-risk populations (i.e., children aged 0-5, foster youth aged 18-21, LGBTQ population, runaway youth, pregnant foster youth)
Post-adoption services
Public input is vital to understanding what is working and what can be done differently. The session will be held on Wednesday from 12:30–2:30 p.m. at the Stanback Auditorium in the Rowan Public Library, Main Branch, 201 W. Fisher St., Salisbury.

Input can also be provided via:
