Earlier this week, I wrote a post that announced the introduction to Season 2 of the School of Government’s Judicial College podcast, Beyond the Bench. Season 2 consists of six episodes and discusses family homelessness, child neglect, and the child welfare system in North Carolina. The first episode, “Without a Home” is now available on our podcast website (or through Itunes and Stitcher).
In this first episode, you will hear from two homeless shelter providers and three district court judges who preside over abuse, neglect, and dependency cases. You will learn about family homelessness in North Carolina, whether it constitutes child neglect, and when a person is required to make a report of a child’s suspected neglect to the county child welfare agency (e.g., department of social services).
Listed in order of appearance, guest interviewees include:
- Danielle Butler, Executive Director Family Promise of Wake County
- Adrienne Rombach, Clinical Coordinator Haven House Services
- Honorable Denise Hartsfield, Judicial District 21 (Forsyth County)
- Honorable Cheri Siler-Mack, Judicial District 12 (Cumberland County), and
- Honorable J. Corpening II, Chief District Court Judge, Judicial District 5 (New Hanover and Pender Counties)
I hope you like it. Please share your feedback and don’t forget to leave a review if you listen through Itunes or Stitcher.
