An updated Systems of Care (SOC) webpage is available on the Child Welfare Information Gateway website to provide resources for professionals interested in developing interagency collaborations to help meet the needs of children and families. Topics covered by the SOC webpage include:

  • History and guiding principles of SOC
  • Child welfare and SOC
  • Building SOC in your community
  • Communicating with professionals about SOC

A new section also was created on the webpage to provide information on the Children's Bureau Demonstration Initiative: Improving Child Welfare Outcomes Through Systems of Care. In addition, the Publications section was updated and expanded to create the SOC Resource Library.
