Advancing the Children's Bureau's Vision

The Child Welfare Capacity Building Collaborative (Collaborative), a service of the Children’s Bureau, is a partnership among three centers—the Capacity Building Center for States (Center for States), Capacity Building Center for Tribes, and Capacity Building Center for Courts. The Collaborative works with public child welfare agencies, tribes, and courts to build the necessary capacity to meet federal standards and requirements, improve child welfare practice and administration, and achieve safety, permanency, and well-being outcomes for children, youth, and families.

As part of its work with the Collaborative, the Center for States offers an array of resources, events, and services designed to help jurisdictions meet federal laws and requirements, achieve their goals, and improve child welfare practice.
