The National Center was established in October 2013 to implement Partnering for Success, an integrated, sustainable, cross-systems workforce competency model to improve mental health outcomes for child welfare-involved children and youth. Partnering with agencies, the Center aims to build the capacity of public child welfare and mental health frontline workforces, as well as leadership from both systems, to implement trauma-informed, evidence-based practices through specialized learning, clinical and peer consultation, coaching, and organizational support in select jurisdictions.
We have continued to expand our work through partnerships with human services organizations and systems across the country to promote and enhance internal capacity to successfully implement a range of organizational and workforce capacity building components that are practical and sustainable.
We work with systems and community-based agencies serving children, youth and families utilizing a collaborative approach that is responsive and adaptive to the rapidly shifting requirements and policy changes instituted via political and financial influences. We are committed to a process that is inclusive, tailored to the unique local or state system/organization, strives for excellence, builds leadership capacity at all levels and is focused on creating systems/structures that will be sustained over time.
Our team brings extensive knowledge of practice and administration. We deliver effective, flexible and integrated programming, consultation and capacity building that is responsive to the individual and organizational needs and promotes transfer to practice.
