The purpose of the Family and Children’s Resource Program is to strengthen the capacity of North Carolina’s child welfare system (a) by offering technical assistance for children’s services agencies, and (b) by publishing educational materials for foster parents, child welfare workers, and child welfare administrators in North Carolina.
The Family and Children’s Resource Program designs and provides evidence- and competency-based training for the North Carolina child welfare system. The Program staff delivers training in a variety of ways, including online courses, in-person events, and webinars. In addition, the Program staff also tracks participation in the child welfare trainings for the North Carolina Division of Social Services. Moreover, the Family and Children’s Resource Program has a long history of supporting reform efforts to improve the child welfare system in North Carolina.
child welfare professionals and foster parents receive the FCRP publication Fostering Perspectives.
