Description

Describes and summarizes the Child Welfare Capacity Building Collaborative's evidence-informed approach to the change and implementation process, which is sequenced in five phases: Identify and assess needs; develop theory of change; develop or select solution; plan, prepare, and implement; and evaluate and apply findings. Some phases may need to be completed more than once. The Collaborative's services build capacity for child welfare systems to navigate the process on their own.
