The Prevention and Family Recovery (PFR) initiative, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Duke Endowment, seeks to advance the capacity of Family Drug Courts (FDCs) to provide and sustain a comprehensive family-centered care approach that improves outcomes for children, parents and families affected by substance use disorders and child abuse and neglect.

PFR helps established FDCs integrate and institutionalize evidence-based parenting services and developmental and therapeutic services for children into their larger systems of care, and achieve practice and systems improvements to better serve and support families.

Children and Family Futures (CFF) awarded a first round of four PFR grants in April 2014 and expanded to four new sites in January 2017 (see below).  The FDCs receive a grant and intensive technical assistance, training and coaching to help them achieve their goals. The PFR Project Team that supports the grantees includes:
