Important Announcement

NCWWI has had the incredible privilege of supporting the child welfare workforce for 15 years, thanks to the generous funding provided by the Children’s Bureau. Until the end of this funding in September 2024, we will continue to post resources and lessons learned during our projects. 

NCWWI Projects

  • Breakthrough Series Collaborative: In March 2023, NCWWI launched a Breakthrough Series Collaborative (BSC) to support four tribal and seven public child welfare programs across the country in an 18-month initiative to cultivate a sustainability workforce that values justice, equity and inclusivity.
  • Workforce Excellence: From 2018-2023, NCWWI collaborated with seven sites, comprising child welfare programs and their university partners, to cultivate an effective, sustainable child welfare workforce.
  • Interdisciplinary Education: In the academic year 2021-2022 , NCWWI worked with three sites including the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, the University of South Dakota School of Health Sciences, and the Children’s Advocacy Centers of Mississippi, to improve interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate education programs, particularly in addressing child abuse prevention, identification, and response across sectors.
