Welcome Our mission is to conduct research and provide training and implementation support for the SafeCare model so that all parents can provide a nurturing, safe, and healthy home environment for children.
SafeCare is effective in supporting both intervention and prevention initiatives for reducing and preventing the maltreatment of young children.
Studies on SafeCare have shown positive outcomes in improved parenting skills, reduced parental depression, increased program engagement and completion, and increased program satisfaction among parent participants.
Training sessions are based on our skills-enhancement training methodology called The SafeCare 4 (Explain-Model-Practice-Feedback).
Our partners at the Department of Health & Human Services of Humboldt County, California, have produced an evaluation report for the purpose of quality improvement examining SafeCare impacts from January 2013 to June 2016. To view the full report’s additional findings, click here.
The Washington State Institute for Public Policy recently rated SafeCare as having a $20.25 return for every $1 invested in SafeCare, the highest of any program evaluated. Click here to view SafeCare’s report and hereto see how SafeCare compares to other programs.
