SafeCare and Prevention Services
The SafeCare model was recently featured in the latest report released by the Center for New York Affairs at The New School in their Child Welfare Watch publication. The issue focuses on the impact of homelessness on families, particularly young children. Our own Director for Training, Dr. Jenelle Shanley-Chatham was interviewed about the work we do with one of our partners, CAMBA, who plans on implementing SafeCare with homeless families. The SafeCare interview can be seen on page 10 of the report. To view the report click here.
