March 2024Vol. 25, No. 2New From AdoptUSKids: National Center for Diligent Recruitment

AdoptUSKids has expanded its project to create the National Center for Diligent Recruitment. This new addition provides free technical assistance (TA) to states, tribes, and territories, helping them develop and implement effective, data-driven diligent recruitment plans. Child welfare professionals engaging with the National Center for Diligent Recruitment gain access to valuable tools and expertise, emphasizing evidence-based decision-making in addressing the varied needs of children awaiting adoption.

The center will offer several types of onsite TA:

  • Universal TA
  • Constituency group TA
  • Tailored TA
  • Proactive outreach TA

By delivering diverse TA options, the center aims to improve the efficiency and relevance of recruitment plans, tailoring them to the specific challenges faced by different regions.

The center's commitment to collaboration and practical assistance aligns with the overarching goal of enhancing outcomes for children in foster care. By providing tangible support, the National Center for Diligent Recruitment will play a vital role in advancing diligent recruitment efforts and supporting foster, adoptive, and kinship families in providing safe, loving, and culturally appropriate homes for children in out-of-home care.
