On June 26, at an event at the Massachusetts State House, MLRI released a new report: If Now Now, When? A Call to Action for Systemic Child Welfare Reform in Massachusetts. MLRI's report lays out a blueprint and a set of recommendations that outline how Massachusetts can regain its position as an innovator in promoting child welfare, and how it can reconfigure its programs and services to best serve fragile families and children. The recommendations in this report were developed with input from an advisory committee of state and national child welfare experts--scholars, practitioners, former Massachusetts child welfare leaders, and innovative policymakers from around the nation--and draws on successful efforts and innovative practices from around the country.
