We partner with state, local, federal, and private agencies to improve outcomes for child welfare staff and families. Our services take deliberate steps to produce change that lasts and is transformative for families and communities. We help organizations design and implement effective strategies to improve service delivery for children and families. With our unmatched expertise in federal Child and Family Service Reviews (CFSR) and Program Improvement Plan (PIP) processes, we bring together skills, familiarity, and effective methodologies for working through CFSR-related issues.

have collaborated with Public Knowledge®
We created a Community of Practice specifically to develop an overarching child welfare vision and plans for improvement.
To help drive this vision nationally is the Family Integrity & Justice Works at PK.
Child welfare system assessments follow distinct protocols, but approach can be customizable. A scope of work can be designed to help the agency understand the causes and results that led to an assessment, along with recommendations using implementation-science principles and can provide guidance on program improvements.
Legislation passed in the aftermath of the death of a child in the North Carolina Child Welfare system motivated State and county leaders to collaborate on ways to improve service delivery across multiple programs. Public Knowledge® was selected as an independent, third-party to help North Carolina achieve their goal.
Family Integrity & Justice Works at PK for the kick-off webinar on November 2; a national campaign sharing the harms of ASFA.
The work will focus on replacing the current child welfare system instead of improving existing systems that were never designed to support families. The Family Integrity & Justice Works will participate in efforts to end family and racial injustice in child welfare; partner with like-minded public, private, local, and other entities to strengthen their strategies; and serve as a national thought leader, specialized technical assistance provider, and communication conduit for radically replacing the current system with family fortifying and healing approaches.
Our passion is reforming the Child Welfare system, replacing its harmful practices with community-based supports. We work towards implementing foundational changes that improve the lives of children and their families.
Alexandra, an impacted parent, shares the extensive hardships her family faced because of the punitive and harmful practices of ASFA. Repealing legislation causing harm to families across the United States aligns with our Child Welfare Vision and Strategy.
Countless families endure trauma because of ASFA. These women share their lived expertise, shining a light on why it is essential to shift towards family preserving measures within the Child Welfare system.
