NRCOI's mission was to support organizations committed to the welfare of children, youth and families and help them achieve better systemic outcomes.
The NRCOI was one of ten national resource centers (NRCs) funded by the Children’s Bureau (CB), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to provide free, on-site training and technical assistance (T/TA) to State and Tribal child welfare agencies.
Through training, technical assistance, research and evaluation the NRCOI helped agencies improve management and operations, expand organizational capacity and promote service integration. We focused T/TA in six primary areas:
Continuous Quality Improvement
