Training and Technical Assistance
The NRCPFC provides on- and off-site Training and Technical Assistance (T&TA), which is customized for each request and designed to build capacity in child welfare systems and to support States, Territories and Tribes in achieving sustainable, systemic change resulting in greater safety, permanency and well-being for children, youth and families. As an integral part of our T&TA strategy, we infuse family partners’ voices and experiences in our consultation with States, Territories and Tribes.
The NRCPFC also offers “cutting edge” Information Services to State, Tribal and other publicly supported child welfare agencies to promote family-centered practices that support the safety, permanency and well-being of children while meeting the needs of their families.
The NRCPFC is committed to providing T/TA & Information Services that are:
- Culturally Competent
- Family-centered practice
- Community-based practice
- Evidence-Based & Evidence-informed
