Child Well-Being

Expand Capacity of Existing Systems

Existing systems offer a channel to reach populations at increased risk for these situations by targeting entire groups at risk as opposed to seeking out families based on individual characteristics. By working within existing systems that already serve populations where risk is especially high, the program’s research has indicated that more individuals at risk can be targeted effectively and efficiently than with a more costly case-based approach.
