      Maryland’s Family Centered Practice (FCP) model of child welfare is based on a set of core values and practice strategies that focus on increasing positive outcomes for children served by public child welfare to ensure their safety, well-being, and permanence. As per agreement between DHR-SSA and the UMB-SSW, researchers at the Ruth H. Young Center for Families and Children are evaluating the implementation of FCP across Maryland.
