Our number one priority is to proactively support African American families. We firmly believe that the African American community has all of the necessary resources, right now, to resolve the child welfare crisis affecting our communities. If we take care of our families, there can be no legitimate argument for government intervention in the affairs of our families. If we take care of our children there will not be a need to discuss the pros and cons of different forms of "substitute" care and the need for "adoptive" placements. To the extent that African American families need more responsive and relevant services, we must work to ensure that these services are received... and in a timely manner.
Presented below are resources related to issues of family support and preservation, as well as family support organizations that have proven effective in their ability to work with African American families and communities.
