COLLABORATION BETWEEN NCAP AND THE CHRONICLE OF SOCIAL CHANGE AIMS TO IMPROVE POLICY, PRACTICE FOR C
BOSTON, Jan. 27, 2015 – The National Center on Adoption and Permanency (NCAP) and The Chronicle of Social Change today announced a collaboration designed to bolster both organizations’ missions, which converge in their dedication to improving the lives of children, youth and families.
As part of the new partnership, The Chronicle will regularly publish commentaries and analyses by members of the NCAP team on timely and important topics relating to adoption, foster care and child welfare. The two organizations also will work together in a variety of other ways to support and enhance each other’s efforts to promote progress in law, policy and practice relating to those fields.
“Instigating and implementing systemic reforms that tangibly improve the lives of children and families is admittedly an ambitious goal,” said Adam Pertman, the President and founder of NCAP.
“But we’re confident that working with talented partners, notably including those at The Chronicle, will help us to achieve it more quickly and more comprehensively.”
“One of The Chronicle’s key objectives is to create a community of thinkers dedicated to children’s issues in the hopes that a unified field can have a greater impact,” said Daniel Heimpel, publisher of The Chronicle of Social Change. “NCAP has some of the best thinkers – and doers – in our country, so we are thrilled to forge this new partnership.”
The Chronicle is publishing its first commentary from NCAP, written by Pertman, today. It is headlined, “Support Should Never End with Adoption Finalization,” and you can read it HERE.
The mission of the National Center on Adoption and Permanency is to transform adoption – and other forms of permanency – from a model that primarily focuses on child placement to one that enables children and their families to succeed. To achieve its goals, NCAP provides a unique “one-stop” destination for a broad range of information, resources and multidisciplinary services relating to adoption, foster care and child welfare.
The Chronicle of Social Change is a national online news site published by Fostering Media Connections, a nonprofit based in San Francisco, CA. The Chronicle produces daily news about child welfare, juvenile justice and children’s mental health issues, and aims to be the hub of mainstream news coverage on issues affecting vulnerable children and youth.
