On April 14, 2009, approximately 175 individuals from public and private nonprofit agencies across Nevada came together with representatives from national organizations and federal agencies to attend the Nevada Nonprofit’s Children Summit hosted by Senator Harry Reid and co-sponsored by the Nevada Institute for Children’s Research and Policy and the Children’s Advocacy Alliance. Participants gained insight into federal initiatives and discussed practice and policy priorities in the areas of child welfare, juvenile justice and youth homelessness. This briefing presents the recommendations for federal policy proposed by the participants, both state and national, to improve programs and practices in Nevada around child welfare, juvenile justice and youth homelessness. Summit participants and interested parties were invited to submit written policy recommendations and participate in conference calls to discuss the top federal policy priorities which would have the most significant impact in Nevada. The recommendations were summarized into four broad categories, with an emphasis on improving cross-system, evidence-based, community prevention and intervention services.
