SSIP Leading Change Brief Series
National Family Treatment Court Training and Technical Assistance Program, 2019
OJJDP funded the Statewide System Improvement Program (SSIP) to expand the reach of FTCs. SSIP is about taking on “a new approach” or “new way of doing business” to serve all families involved in the child welfare system and affected by parental substance use. This brief series synthesizes the experiences of the six SSIP grantees into lessons for state and local leaders who want to pursue similar system improvement initiatives in their own states and communities. These briefs highlight the dual-pronged “top-down and bottom-up” approach to statewide work: informing systemic, state-level changes through supportive partnerships with local jurisdictions while striving to improve outcomes for families.
Brief 1 provides an overview of the SSIP initiative.
Brief 2 offers lessons and key considerations for state leaders who want to engage in systems improvements in their states.
Brief 3 focuses on lessons for local leaders who want to engage in broader systems change efforts.
