The NCCD Conference on Children, Youth, and Families, which will take place May 14–16, 2014, in San Diego, California, seeks to engage all systems working with children and families, including child protection, foster care, juvenile justice, and education. This conference will bring together people working in and researching these diverse systems in order to forge stronger connections among them and thereby better serve youth and families. We are especially proud to welcome Father Greg Boyle of Homeboy Industries and Robert Lewis, Jr., of The BASE as our conference plenary speakers.
