Public-Private partnerships in Child Welfare

Just returned from 4 days in San Antonio at the 4th annual and final Quality Improvement Center – Privatization in Child Welfare conference. More than 30 states were represented by one public official and one private-sector official.
Quality of panel presentations, special speakers and break-out sessions was fantastic! Kansas, Florida, Missouri, and Illinois highlighted their histories and successes with privatization. All emphasized the importance of public childwelfare collaborating with private sector providers whether considering privatization or not. Final speaker was Bryan Samuels, Commissioner of Administration for Children and Families. What a leader and visionary!
