The Family Connections Program was created through collaboration among parents, caregivers (relatives, suitable adults/fictive kin, and foster & adoptive parents), Amara, Olive Crest, King County CASA, DCYF Child Welfare field and support staff, Parent Allies, The Alliance for Child Welfare Excellence, Fostering Connections for Families LLC, and staff from various Early Intervention agencies with CHERISH programs in King County; as members of the Child Welfare Community Connections Advisory Panel (CWC-CAP) sponsored by CHERISH.
The Family Connections Program is based on the Annie E. Casey Foundation's Icebreaker Meetings (https://www.aecf.org/resources/icebreaker-meetings/).
