National Child Welfare Resource Center for Organizational Improvement
The National Child Welfare Resource Center for Organizational Improvement's (NRCOI) mission is to support organizations committed to the welfare of children, youth and families and help them achieve better systemic outcomes.
We are funded by the Children's Bureau, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to provide free, on-site training and technical assistance (T/TA) to State and Tribal child welfare agencies.
Through training, technical assistance, research and evaluation we help agencies improve management and operations, expand organizational capacity and promote service integration. We focus T/TA in six primary areas, including: Strategic Planning, Quality Improvement, Collaboration, Workforce, Training Systems, and the federal Child and Family Services Review process.

State and Wabanaki Tribes Sign Truth and Reconciliation Mandate
On June 29, 2012, five Wabanaki Chiefs and Governor Paul LePage signed a Mandate document commencing the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission to examine Maine child welfare practices affecting Wabanaki people.
The ceremony represents a historic agreement between Wabanaki Tribal Governments and the State of Maine to uncover and acknowledge the truth, create opportunities to heal and learn from the truth, and collaborate to operate the best child welfare system possible for Wabanaki children, a goal shared by all the signatories to the Mandate.
