The Florida Institute for Child Welfare is continuing to advance a program of training/consultation designed to assist organizations with aligning policy with practice. The Department of Children and Families engaged the Florida Institute for Child Welfare to develop and validate an assessment tool to measure, document, and facilitate quality standards for residential group care. Presentations and reports from Development and Validation of an Assessment of Quality Standards for Family Residential Group Homes are available. The Institute also generates toolkits to assist organizations to improve outcomes.
The Institute can now engage in contracts to conduct evaluations and provide technical assistance. Please contact Dr. Pryce for more details.
