DRAFT CT Family First Prevention Plan

Now available for review and public comment!

The DRAFT CT Family First Prevention Plan is now available for review and public comment. 

The Department of Children and Families (CT DCF), together with our partners, is becoming a child wellbeing system focused on prevention and early intervention.  This compliments our existing focus on child protection and children's behavioral health.

CT DCF co-leads JoShonda Guerrier, Sr. Admin Clinical & Community Supports and Bureau Chief Ken Mysogland, External Affairs, have masterfully led a structured and collaborative process.  Over 400 community partners were involved, including parents and youth with lived experience.  These decision-makers, thought partners, and experts serve throughout state government, community organizations, advocacy groups, contracted providers, and a host of other stakeholders--all on a mission to develop a functional prevention plan prioritized to ensure children and families are truly at the center of the work.

We are pleased to provide you with:
