Some of our work
WRI administered a statewide Recruitment and Retention Resources survey to identify areas of opportunity and barriers to success. WRI assisted seven identified counties in NYS in creating empirical plans to track and share Key Performance Indicator data to monitor progress more effectively. WRI also developed Continuous Quality Improvement practices with the identified counties to ensure that the practices adopted during the grant period remained sustainable after its conclusion. The data-driven foster care recruitment model developed during this period gained national acclaim: https://ocfs.ny.gov/programs/fostercare/recruitment/
WRI served as lead facilitators for a series of six online meetings sponsored by the NYS Office of Victim Services and Lifespan of Greater Rochester. The meetings brought together key stakeholders from around New York State to focus on better providing for the needs of underserved populations. The recommendations were incorporated into goals and strategies for a statewide elder abuse plan.
Through a contract with the Redlich Horwitz Foundation, WRI has helped support county-level, data-driven strategies to increase family and youth engagement, increase kinship care, decrease congregate care, and strengthen prevention services for children and families involved with the child welfare system. WRI works with county Departments of Social Services and key community stakeholders to meet each county’s individual needs and emphasize their strengths, creating plans for continuous quality improvement.
