Rhode Island Children’s Cabinet

Governor Gina M. Raimondo reconvened The Rhode Island Children’s Cabinet in July 2015, after working with the General Assembly to revise the statute establishing the Cabinet as a decision-making entity for children.

Pursuant to R.I.G.L. §42-72.5 (1-3), the Children’s Cabinet is authorized to engage in interagency agreements and appropriate data-sharing to improve services and outcomes for children and youth.

As the Cabinet pays special attention to the wellbeing and education of Rhode Island’s children, Governor Raimondo has appointed Eric Beane, Secretary of the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, as chair, and Ken Wagner, Commissioner of Elementary & Secondary Education, as vice chair.
