New guidebook provides strategies for creating a permanence-driven child welfare organization

anuguide.PNGA new publication from the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare (CASCW) and Anu Family Services provides guidance for creating a permanence-driven child welfare organization.

Creating a Permanence Driven Organization: A Guidebook for Change in Child Welfare outlines processes by which agencies can shift from helping youth to simply survive to helping youth thrive through a permanence-driven framework, using the experiences of Anu Family Services staff. Since 2006, Anu Family Services was able to increase permanence outcomes for youth exiting treatment foster care by 84 percent through implementation of evidence-informed practices, significant cultural and organizational change, and extensive changes in practice.
