OCS managers from across Alaska recently gathered in Anchorage to kick off development of the 5-Year Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP). The CFSP is a federally required state plan intended to serve as a roadmap for organizational development leading toward improved child safety, permanency and well-being outcomes.
In addition to the CFSP, participants took the opportunity to share successful practice innovations occurring throughout the organization and discuss budgets and spending priorities, organizational communication, and strategies for improving employee wellness and retention.
The CFSP will be developed in conjunction with internal staff and community stakeholders with a completion date projected for June 30, 2014. For more information, please contact Natalie Powers at Natalie.Powers@alaska.gov .
