This special issue of Journal of Public Child Welfare seeks to stimulate intentional thinking about how child welfare systems--the public sector and allied formal and informal community resources--are currently working toward improving outcomes when children are at home and to help keep children at home. The issue strives to inform the field of practices with the strongest evidence base that have been applied to in-home child welfare services.

The National Resource Center for Family Centered Practice at the University of Iowa is pleased to announce a new certification training program for supervisors of family support programs. The course, Strengthening Family Support through Supervision, is a blended in-person/on-line course. Four training days will be conducted on-site and in-person. One of the most important goals for the on-site time is developing relationships with and learning from other supervisors. We have organized training for family support supervisors from diverse professional backgrounds and at all career stages. The curriculum supports the Iowa Family Support Standards and is applicable to a variety of family support models, including Healthy Families America, Early Head Start, Head Start, Parents as Teachers, FaDSS and local program models.
