Celebrating 30 Years!!!

In 1992, the National Family Preservation Network (NFPN) was formed when the Center for the Study of Social Policy and the Center for the Study of Family Policy convened a national network for intensive family preservation services. Since that time, NFPN has come a long way!

Our mission is to serve as the primary voice for the preservation of families, which is achieved through initiatives in family preservation & reunification services and father-involvement. A large portion of this work has been focused on the North Carolina Family Assessment Scales (NCFAS) which were first developed in 2001 and have been updated and augmented several times. The NCFAS tools have been purchased by more than 1000 agencies/ individuals and they are widely used in the United States and other countries, especially Australia and Chile (they’re available in Spanish). In addition, NFPN has conducted numerous studies on the effectiveness of our tools and family preservation & reunification services.

We recently published our 2021 Annual Report. To view it, please use this link: https://www.nfpn.org/media/pnsfbzzb/2021-annual-report.pdf. We also recently added a new board member, Joshua Main. He has worked in family preservation and in-home services for many years. Josh is currently the IFPS State Program Coordinator for Coastal Horizons Center in Wilmington, NC. We’re very pleased to have him join us!

As we head into our 30th year, we have many exciting things planned, including revisions to our tools & training and research regarding new & existing practices. We’ll keep you posted through our website, blog, mailing list and social media pages. We greatly appreciate all that you’ve done to support our work and help us reach this milestone anniversary!
