fisOn September 22nd, 2016, N.C. State legislators and other guests gathered for a discussion on “The Intersections of Child Welfare and Substance Abuse: Strategies for Supporting Families.” This was the 10th in a series of Family Impact Seminars designed to provide objective, non-advocacy, solution-oriented research on timely issues selected by policymakers. The seminars encourage policymakers to consider the impact of policies on families, just as they regularly consider the impact of policies on the economy and the environment.

Seminar materials are available here.

Special thanks to Susan Foosness (Public Consulting Group) for her leadership role in planning the 2016 N.C. Family Impact Seminar.
