Family-Centered Practice Project in Child Welfare
Family-centered practice in child welfare means that workers partner with families and their communities to ensure the safety, kinship and cultural connections, and well-being of children, youth, and their families. The Family-Centered Practice Project (FCPP) is funded through a contract with the NC Division of Social Services. This project is part of the Multiple-Response System child welfare reform effort in North Carolina. The FCPP provides training, technical assistance, and evaluation that advances cultural safety, family leadership, community partnerships, and inclusive planning.
