This week on our Advocate Virtual Forum, we continue the discussion on the challenges, opportunities, and future of the Kentucky Department for Community Based Services workforce. DCBS Commissioner Marta Miranda-Straub and members of DCBS leadership have a conversation with community stakeholders, including Kathy Adams, Director of Public Policy for Children’s Alliance; Tiffany Hall, COO at Volunteers of America Mid-States; Rick Wurth, CEO of Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky; and, Melissa Goins of the state Office of FRYSC.

This is part two of a two-part series with DCBS. Listen to part one in the September 16, 2021 Making Kids Count episode. View the slideshow presentation from DCBS.
