The Safe & Together™ Model North America Conference, our longest-running conference is our regional touchstone event for new workers, as well as seasoned professionals with years of experience. The implementation of the Safe & Together Model in child welfare family serving systems continues to grow exponentially throughout North America, the United Kingdom and Australia, therefore attending the conference each year is a chance to learn what’s new with the Model, how it’s working and who has been making it work.
