Dear Colleagues,

The Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF), the prime contractor for the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN), and the Pennsylvania Child Welfare Resource Center’s Independent Living Project (IL) are pleased to announce the agenda for the 2022 SWAN/IL Summer Statewide Meeting, which will be held on June 21-22, 2022. The meeting will be held in person. SWAN affiliates are required to attend statewide meetings. We also invite and encourage each county children and youth agency to attend, including caseworkers, supervisors and administrators.

The morning presentation for the 2022 SWAN/IL Summer Statewide Meeting will be “When Miracles Happen: Celebrating 30 Years of Pennsylvania’s Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network” by Judi Damiano, SWAN Program Administrator. We do not always recognize a miracle while it is happening, and sometimes we do not realize the important role we have in making a miracle happen. This session is a celebration of the large and small miracles that have happened through SWAN since 1992. Successes and lessons learned by professionals as well as foster and adoptive families will be shared through anecdotes and testimonies collected from the network.

Following the general session, we are pleased to offer a comprehensive agenda of five concurrent sessions in the afternoon, and six concurrent sessions the next day. Please review the session descriptions accompanying the invitation. Approval of continuing education credit provided through co-sponsorship with the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work, a Pennsylvania preapproved provider of social work continuing education, is pending. The SWAN prime contractor will also issue certificates of training that can be credited toward the 20 hours of annual training required for all county children and youth caseworkers.
