Casey Family Programs' consulting initiatives focus on our partnerships with public child welfare systems across the country.
Casey supports jurisdictions through a variety of “on-the-ground” services. We offer two specialized methodologies—Peer Technical Assistance and the Breakthrough Series Collaborative. Both focus on convening teams of child welfare systems to work together on specific improvements.
Casey also provides project management and implementation support. We help systems gather stakeholder input through "constituency engagement," a process that involves birth parents, foster parents, kinship caregivers, and alumni of foster care in child welfare improvement projects.
This innovative methodology to test and implement small changes in child welfare practice shows significant promise for system-wide improvements.

Peer Technical Assistance (Peer TA) is a structured opportunity for teams of people from different jurisdictions to learn from each other’s experiences. Casey Family Programs convenes such teams to develop plans that help improve outcomes for children and families.
