FRIENDS National Resource Center for Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention

In 2004, CWLA became a partner in the FRIENDS National Resource Center for Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention. The lead organization with the Center is the Chapel Hill Training-Outreach Project, joined by CWLA, the National Alliance of Children's Trust and Prevention Funds, Circle of Parents, Independent Living Resources, Inc., and a National Advisory Committee. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill serves as an independent evaluator for the project.

The FRIENDS National Resource Center is funded by the U.S. Children's Bureau to promote the Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention program (CBCAP). FRIENDS provides training and technical assistance to lead agencies in each state, intended to build their capacity to meet the requirements of Title II of the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, as amended in 2003.

CWLA's role on the FRIENDS team is to help state CBCAP lead agencies build effective working relationships with state child welfare agencies, with the goal of strengthening overall state efforts to enhance the capacity of families to provide for their children's needs. CWLA's efforts include
  • reviewing Child and Family Service Review (CFSR), reports and Program Improvement Plans (PIPs), and providing state-specific assistance to enhance PIP achievement;

  • identifying states where collaboration is working, or at least in a "promising beginnings" stage, to develop a model approach;

  • developing tools and products outlining how CBCAP agencies can coordinate with the CFSR/PIP and Title IV-B Plans, and other possible approaches;

  • making products and tools known to child welfare organizations and lead agencies; and

  • providing state-specific assistance in achieving the goals of the CFSRs/PIPs and the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act by pairing state child welfare and CBCAP lead agencies in joint meetings and content-specific workgroups.
CWLA also will join FRIENDS team members to provide state-specific assistance through a range of technical assistance offerings.

National Resource Center for Child Welfare Data and Technology

The U.S. Children's Bureau of the Administration on Children, Youth, and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, established a National Resource Center for Information Technology in Child Welfare (NRC-ITCW) in 1999, awarding CWLA a five-year cooperative agreement to support states, local and tribal child welfare programs, and courts in their effective use of automated information systems and data.

That five-year agreement was renewed in 2004, and NRC-ITCW was renamed the National Resource Center for Child Welfare Data and Technology (NRC-CWDT). CWLA is pleased to continue its partnership with Xtria and the National Indian Child Welfare Association in operating NRC-ITCW for the Children's Bureau .

For more information, call 877/672-4829, e-mail nrccwdt@cwla.org, or go to www.nrccwdt.org.
