BerryDunn is expanding its team of child welfare consultants to help state agencies meet the increased need for services related to the pandemic while navigating changing economic and regulatory conditions.

BerryDunn’s unique approach to child welfare consulting is outcomes-based and client-focused. The team helps agencies prepare for uncertainty and ever-evolving federal requirements. According to Practice lead Warren Graver, “Our team features professionals who have walked in the client’s shoes and can leverage those experiences to deliver insights for improving child welfare outcomes. One of our goals is to alleviate the burdens of the constraints our clients face. For example, we can streamline system replacement and program optimization initiatives.”

The team includes professionals with hands-on experience in information systems replacement and state and federal capacities:
