If we know one thing it is this, children belong with families. National Reunification Month is celebrated in June of each year to recognize the people and efforts around the country that help families stay together. It is also a time to celebrate the families who have overcome obstacles to providing a safe and loving home for their children and are able to reunify after their child was placed in the child welfare system. I speak to Kimberly Ali, Commissioner of the City of Philadelphia Department of Human Services about steps DHS takes to provide the services that prevent and address family separation.
