The IFPS Website is designed as a resource both for those in the field of family preservation and those who are interested in learning about IFPS, the unique role it plays in child welfare, and its history.
Priscilla Martens, Director at National Family Preservation Network describes the website as “a tool for the field: a repository of knowledge and a way to stay in touch with everyone involved in preserving families.”
The website features a page on the 40th Anniversary of IFPS and the July 17, 2014, celebration in Seattle. Check back frequently as we will be posting photos and new materials over the coming months.
Douglas W. Nelson, Retired President and CEO of the Annie E. Casey Foundation shares his thoughts on the 40th Anniversary of IFPS and its impact on the child welfare system in the U.S.
“I am convinced that the lessons learned from the development and implementation of family preservation program models will continue to inform child welfare practice and system reform efforts in the next twenty five years. It is a timeless model that encourages and supports the fundamental belief that all children need and deserve a family.”
