International Social Service to Host Casework Coordinators Meeting

Baltimore, MD, (April 10, 2017) – International Social Service-USA is pleased to be the network partner hosting the 2017 Casework Coordinators Meeting, an annual convening of international supervisory colleagues within International Social Service’s global network of 120 partners. During this three-day meeting occurring April 26-28th, Casework Supervisors from around the world will discuss challenges and share best practices in case management to efficiently and effectively help more children and families who need cross-border services.

This meeting, which is taking place in the U.S. for the first time, is occurring during a pivotal time in history when a record 65.3 million people are forcibly displaced, and half of the world’s refugees are children. Attendees will examine these global issues and discuss ways to collaboratively and proactively respond. Caseworkers will discuss current case practice models and trends and will brainstorm how to collaboratively provide social services to more children in need, including migrant children, victims of trafficking, victims of international parental kidnapping, children in foster care, and children who have been abused and neglected.

We look forward to convening with international colleagues and collaboratively finding solutions for more children and families who need cross-border services.
