October 2014Vol. 15, No. 9New NRCDR Website
The National Resource Center for Diligent Recruitment (NRCDR) at AdoptUSKids launched a new website that aims to help State and Tribal child welfare administrators, leaders, and managers implement diligent recruitment programs to find foster families that reflect the population of children in care. Featuring a modern look and clean navigation, the new website offers easy access to a wealth of information on topics such as diligent recruitment, placement stability and permanency, and working with and recruiting diverse populations. Professionals can also find resources for developing and supporting prospective and current foster and adoptive families, as well as information on how comprehensive diligent recruitment relates to continuous quality improvement (CQI). In addition, the new site includes a section for Tribes that describes NRCDR's work with Tribes in collaboration with other Children's Bureau member organizations, offers ideas from the field around diligent recruitment with Tribes, and points to useful tools and resources.
The new website features NRCDR's Diligent Recruitment Navigator, a tool that States, Tribes, and territories can customize to help them develop and implement comprehensive diligent recruitment plans and programs. The new Diligent Recruitment Navigator webpage also reviews several frequently asked questions to help users know what to expect when using the tool.
