Child Poverty and the Social Safety Net
Limited seating available, register today!
When: Wednesday, June 20, 2018
Location: Child Parent Institute |3642 Standish Avenue, Santa Rosa
Speaker: Caroline Danielson, Public Policy Institute of California
Topic: Child Poverty and the Social Safety Net
Join Prevent Child Abuse Sonoma County (PCA-SC) and First 5 Sonoma County in welcoming the Public Policy Institute of California as they present "Child Poverty and the Social Safety Net". This presentation will focus on the Bay Area and Sonoma County and give insight into how poverty is measured and how measurement has been improved over the past 5 years. The presenter will reassess poverty in California in light of both the high cost of living in many areas and the contributions of social safety net programs like CalFresh and CalWORKS to families' resources. The presentation will also include a high-level overview of how the social safety net could do more to protect children from poverty.
Caroline Danielson is a senior fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California. Her research focuses on multiple dimensions of the social safety net, including its role in mitigating poverty, program access and enrollment, and the integration and governance of programs. Her work has been published in numerous academic journals.
One of the most effective ways to do this is by becoming a CASA volunteer. We are thankful that approximately 220 children in foster care in Sonoma County have a Court Appointed Special Advocate, a CASA, to help guide and advocate for them in the judicial and child welfare system. Unfortunately, at the same time we have 55 children still waiting for a CASA and referrals being received weekly.
Research shows that children in foster care, who have a CASA, live happier, healthier lives as adults. As little as 10
hours a month can make a child's life brighter. Our S
