What We Do

MCWIC is a member of the Children’s Bureau Training and Technical Assistance (T/TA) Network and will work collaboratively with the Child Welfare National Resource Centers and other members of the T/TA Network that are also providing assistance to child welfare agencies. Our work will be guided by, but not limited to, the Child and Family Services Reviews findings, related Program Improvement Plans, IV-B Child and Family Services Plans and other strategic plans, and the System of Care framework. The MCWIC team will work with child welfare leaders and managers to:

  • improve the quality and performance of child welfare services, based on organizational needs identified and prioritized by the child welfare agency;
  • provide the expertise and resources needed to enhance, rather than duplicate, agency capacity to effectively implement and sustain systemic change;
  • facilitate communication and peer-to-peer networking across State and Tribal child welfare systems;
  • institutionalize child welfare principles, policies, and evidence-based or promising practice models
  • build and disseminate knowledge about effective implementation in the child welfare field.
