Federal and state law, as well as social science research, support the least-restrictive, most family-like placement for youth in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Despite that, many youth, particularly older youth, in both systems continued to be placed in congregate care at alarming rates. The risks and concerns of congregate care placement are heightened during the COVID-19 pandemic. Attorneys play a key role in advocating to get and keep their clients out of congregate care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Join attorneys from around the country to learn why congregate care placement is particularly risky during the pandemic, and what attorneys can do to zealously advocate for their clients that are placed in or may be placed in congregate care. Participants will walk away with best practices and advocacy tips that are applicable during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.


This webinar is part of NACC’s ongoing series of responsive training measures to support attorney practice in the COVID-19 pandemic. The session is open to members AND non-members.

Pending accreditation for 2 hours of CLE in Colorado. CLE approval in at least one state can streamline an attorney’s CLE application in another state. Check with your jurisdiction for details on simplified CLE applications and online/on-demand learning requirements.
