Iowa Center for Evaluation & Research
DMC Resource Center


The NRCFCP has provided technical assistance for family-focused program development and child welfare systems reform for over a decade. Technical assistance is a critical component of the Center's overall mission to disseminate current information on family-centered services policy and program development, train professionals and paraprofessionals in a variety of techniques for successful family-centered practice, and conduct state-of-the-art program evaluation. TA activities collaboratively build upon and support strategic efforts with national and regional family care service systems seeking to promote family-centered capacity building.

Staff and consultants for the NRCFCP draw upon a broad knowledge base encompassing critical developments in family and child welfare policy, systems reform issues, diverse program models, contemporary practice methods, and comprehensive evaluation designs. Technical assistance consultations are designed to facilitate the establishment and maintenance of family-centered, culturally responsive, and community empowering programs and related initiatives.
