Fighting for Kin, Enduring Relationships, and Unconditional Cash
On an all-headlines edition of The Imprint Weekly Podcast, Imprint reporter Sara Tiano joins us to discuss her new series on an Oklahoma child welfare worker, also a licensed foster parent, who is losing a fight to adopt her two nephews in Minnesota. The case raises fresh questions about the prioritization of kin in child welfare.
We also discuss some mixed reviews from new research on unconditional cash support, the impact of enduring relationships for older youth in foster care, the future of mandated reporting, and more.
