Working With Our Federal Partners

The U.S. Department of Human Services Administration for Children and Families (ACF) has released an Information Memorandum (IM) on child welfare and homelessness. The IM is meant to help child welfare agencies implement a desired practice or rule. Identified within the IM are promising practices, one of which is Partnerships to Demonstrate the Effectiveness of Supportive Housing for Families in the Child Welfare System.
 
In addition, CSH and The U.S. Department of Human Services Administration for Children and Families (ACF) have jointly unveiled a new resource: Early Childhood Self-Assessment Tool for Family Supportive Housing – A Guide to Support the Safe, Healthy Development of Young Children. CSH and ACF are grateful to the many experts who contributed to the Tool. We look forward to its wide distribution and use in the field, and are eager to receive feedback that will allow us to continuously refine it to bring maximum benefit to those we care about most: our families and young children in supportive housingLearn more.
