CIP Stories is a podcast focused on teaching and learning through sharing stories of dependency court system improvement and reform by illuminating the collaboration among Court Improvement Program coordinators, directors, judges, justices, lawyers, children, families, child welfare professionals and other community partners at the national, state and local levels.
For more than 25 years, the CIP has been a catalyst for changing the nation’s dependency courts and improving the safety, permanency, and well-being outcomes for the families and children involved with juvenile courts and child welfare agencies.
