November 2017Vol. 18, No. 8Implementation of California's Continuum of Care Reform

The California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC) has produced a webinar to provide child welfare agencies with an understanding of how the CEBC can help address and implement California's Continuum of Care Reform (CCR) core services.

CCR is a series of reforms to child welfare and provides the statutory and policy framework to ensure that the services and support provided to a child and his or her family are tailored toward meeting the ultimate goal of maintaining a stable and permanent family. The main principles of CCR include providing all children with a committed, nurturing, and permanent family that will prepare them for a successful transition into adulthood; valuing the experience and voice of children and their families in assessment, placement, and service planning; and making sure children do not have to change placements to get the services they need.

The webinar focuses on three main learning objectives:

  • How to effectively use the CEBC website to identify and access information on relevant programs for addressing California's CCR core services, including trauma-informed care, home-based mental health care, residential therapeutic programs, and child and family training approaches
  • How to access additional tools and resources for implementing evidence-based practices that address CCR's core services
  • How to identify best practices and strategies for cross-system collaboration between child welfare and behavioral health systems

The webinar "Implementation of California's Continuum of Care Reform" is available at
