Road Work Ahead
So, who needs to know about CCR?
It is imperative that the key facts and intent of the law are well communicated to stakeholders. Utilizing communication tools such as brochures and engagement letters are a good start. Here are some resources to use in order to “spread the word” throughout your community. For starters, staff, caregivers, youth, and community partners need to be familiar with CCR and how it will impact them. Other key stakeholders may include the courts, bargaining units, and CASAs.
