Positive Outcomes for Children and Families

September 28, 2017

Welcome to our blog!

My name is Amy Ramirez and I am excited to share our new child welfare blog Effecting Change! Here at the Family and Children’s Resource Program (FCRP) we make a difference every day by helping to improve outcomes for families. We are a dynamic organization within the Jordan Institute in the School of Social Work
at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a public university system, and a global community.

What are we going to be blogging about?

  • Current and future trends in child welfare (We learned so much at the NSDTA and Project NO Rest 2017 conferences)
  • Transfer of learning and professional development content including “Welcome to Supervision” and “Applying the Reasonable and Prudent Parenting Standard” to name just a few
  • Evidence based practice – applying it to the real work

Mothers and children

At the heart of everything we do is a focus on the strengths of families, respect for those who serve families and children, and appreciation for families’ needs within communities.
