The Center for Children and Family Futures (CCFF), with support from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), hosts the national FTC Training and Technical Assistance Program’s Peer Learning Court (PLC) Program. PLCs highlight national best practices for FTC collaboratives and further the exchange of learning through peer-to-peer technical assistance while advancing knowledge in the field.
PLCs are FTCs that operate with fidelity to the model by using sound, evidence-supported practices and policies to improve child welfare and substance use disorder treatment outcomes for families. Serving as model courts, PLCs demonstrate strong collaborative leadership teams that include champions among courts, child welfare, SUD treatment, and other family-serving agencies.
CCFF launched the PLC Program in 2012 to highlight national best practice models for FTCs and to further the exchange of knowledge and innovative practice through peer-to-peer learning and technical assistance. The 15 FTCs selected to serve as Peer Learning Courts in former cohorts applied sound evidence-supported practices and policies, and demonstrated strong collaboration among the courts, child welfare, substance abuse treatment agencies, and others.
The fourth cohort of PLCs begins October 1, 2020. CCFF will select eight FTC collaboratives to participate in the PLC Program through September 30, 2022.
