A Snapshot of UNC-Chapel Hill's Rural Success Project
In 2003 the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services awarded six 5-year grants (US ACYF 2003C.2) to universities to develop training to enhance the effectiveness of child welfare workers and supervisors serving rural communities.
The Family and Children’s Resource Program, part of the Jordan Institute for Families at the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Social Work, received one of these grants and launched the Rural Success Project. The project team hopes the lessons it learns can be translated into policies at the county, state, and federal level to improve the overall safety and well-being of rural children and families.
