The Center for Children and Family Futures (CCFF) requests applications for the Peer Learning Court (PLC) program’s fifth cohort! The PLC program designates mentor family treatment courts1 (FTCs) and Tribal family healing to wellness courts (FHWCs) to highlight best practices and share innovations that advance the implementation of the FTC Best Practice Standards.
PLCs are mentor FTC and FHWC collaboratives serving families involved in the child welfare system and affected by parental substance use and co-occurring challenges. They demonstrate commitment to evidence-based practices; innovative strategies to improve outcomes for children, youth, and families; and strong partnerships among Tribes, courts, child welfare, substance use treatment, and community service agencies.
Collaboratives selected use sound, evidence-supported practices and policies while demonstrating strong collaboration among the courts, child welfare, substance use treatment providers, and community service agencies.
CCFF will provide PLC recommendations to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) who will select up to eight collaboratives—prioritizing at least one Tribal FHWC to serve as a PLC for 2 years.
