Child welfare services are notoriously difficult to navigate through, often because of the amount of programs available combined with the specific needs of families to be intentionally matched to these programs. The university of Chicago’s Chapin Hall has launched a NEW “Evidence-Based Practice Desk Guide” helps to combat this issue, by indexing 17 programs of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Title IV-E Prevention Services. The goal of these programs is to help families thrive while also preventing unnecessary foster care placements.

While using the guide, you will be able to see each program’s target population, intensity and duration, effectiveness for families of color, and languages available in an easy-to-use dashboard, helping to connect families with the resources they most need.
