The 18th Annual Meeting of the Supportive Housing Association of New Jersey (SHANJ) was held today, and CSH was there to present on the topics of Child Welfare Involved Family and Youth Supportive Housing innovations in New Jersey.
CSH led a two-part panel focused on the innovations used by the New Jersey Department of Children and Families (DCF) to develop supportive housing initiatives for child welfare involved families and youth aging out of care. Participants heard from the DCF leadership, providers and partners that have helped develop and implement these new initiatives.
