Early Childhood Systems Building Resource Guide

Child Welfare Information Gateway Systems of Care

This Web page provides information about the systems-of-care approach. Many children and youth in the child welfare system and those at risk of abuse and neglect have a variety of physical, mental, social, emotional, educational, and developmental needs. Systems of care is a service delivery approach that builds partnerships to create a broad, integrated process for meeting children’s families' varied needs. The first round of Child and Family Service Review findings show that this systems-change model of practice is effective in promoting improved outcomes for children, youth, and families.
