The Family Engagement Inventory is a Web-based tool from the Children's Bureau's Child Welfare Information Gateway. The inventory shows the overlap of family engagement work in child welfare, juvenile justice, behavioral health, education, and early childhood education. The site also shares the latest resources and strategies for those who work directly with families, manage programs and lead systems.
In the "What Works" sections, you'll find resources about best practices to create proper engagement with clients and families as well as determine which system of care works best for each domain.
