WELCOME TO NCCPR


The members of the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform have encountered the child welfare system in their professional capacities. Through NCCPR, we work to make that system better serve America’s most vulnerable children by trying to change policies concerning child abuse, foster care and family preservation.  This is an alternate homepage for those who have said they find our main site, www.nccpr.org hard to read.  The material on both sites is the same.

WHAT'S NEW

NEW: Thirteen states are competing for nine "waivers" from federal child welfare funding rules.  We grade the proposals in the  NCCPR Child Welfare Waiver Proposal Report Card


THE NCCPR CHILD WELFARE BLOG 
The NCCPR Child Welfare Blog offers news and commentary on child welfare, and media coverage of child welfare, usually updated at least weekly. You also can follow us on Twitter and Facebook. 
NCCPR: THE PRIUS OF CHILD ADVOCACY
The National Coalition for Child Protection Reform is to child advocacy as a fuel-efficient hybrid is to automobiles. Operating on a shoestring budget of about $100,000 per year, we think we’ve produced more real reform per dollar spent than any other national child advocacy organization in America.
The trade journal Youth Today says NCCPR “might be the most successful youth advocate[s] out there in terms of landing [their] words on editorial pages around the country.” 
But that’s not an end in itself. The goal is reducing the number of children needlessly torn from everyone loving and familiar. So please Click here for details about how we accomplish that goal, including at our “Top Five” accomplishments for children.
