About Family Engagement

Family engagement is one of the cornerstones of the Virginia Children's Services System Transformation, transforming Virginia's child welfare system. No longer are Virginia's social service agencies the sole decision makers for Virginia's children and families. Family engagement requires a shift from the belief that agencies alone know what is best for children and families to one that allows the family to fully participate in decision-making.
