Midwest Child Welfare Implementation Center
The Midwest Child Welfare Implementation Center (MCWIC) is one of five Child Welfare Implementation Centers established by cooperative agreement with the Children’s Bureau in October 2008. Our role is to support and facilitate communication and networking across public child welfare systems, and to assist States and Tribes to develop and execute multi-year strategic plans for sustainable systems change to improve the quality and effectiveness of child welfare services. These changes will be focused on organizational culture, administration, and direct practice with children and families. Each Child Welfare Implementation Center is regionally-focused, serving two of the ten Federal regions. The MCWIC will work with the States and Native American Tribes in Region V (Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota) and Region VII (Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, and Kansas).
