WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE IN CHILD WELFARE. 

The goal of the National Center is to build the capacity of the child welfare workforce, mental health providers and agency leadership from both systems to implement trauma-informed evidence-based services through specialized training, coaching and targeted technical assistance in select jurisdictions. We aim to implement an integrated, cross-systems workforce competency model that is designed to improve mental health outcomes for child welfare involved children and youth while providing jurisdictions the resources and capacity to sustain these efforts.
