Each spring, we host a statewide Independent Living staff networking conference. The purpose of the conference is to increase the knowledge of the Independent Living Program for DHR staff and other professionals working all ILP related program. One hundred slots will be designated for DHR county and state office staff, provided at no charge to DHR staff. Other professionals in the state who work with IL youth, such as residential providers, IL contract providers, and other private professionals will also be able to attend for a nominal fee.
2020 Networking Conference
This year was very different due to the Covid-19 pandemic yet, we pushed through! CAS staff and Alabama DHR came together to create four informative sessions to help provide better outcomes for our youth in care before aging out, and we hosted our first virtual conference in May. The recorded sessions can be found here: 2020 Networking Conference.
