Data is everywhere in child welfare. But how much of it is accessible? When workers don’t have the information they need, the children they serve are at risk for further trauma. In a worst-case scenario, there could be fatal consequences.
Implementing an approach to utilize “dark data” will help agencies improve outcomes by achieving permanency for youth, reducing social worker turnover and increasing case continuity, enabling agencies to implement new initiatives such as trauma-informed care, and understanding community trends impacting child maltreatment.
Join the webinar to learn how Fairfield County Child and Adult Protective Services is embracing “dark data” to make informed, confident safety decisions.
