Find out how some rural areas are using innovative tools to provide child welfare services in Information Gateway's newly updated issue brief, Rural Child Welfare Practice. Child welfare practice in rural areas presents caseworkers and communities with unique challenges and opportunities. Learn about the concerns and needs of children and families in rural communities, their strengths and resources, and the cultural sensitivity required of child welfare professionals as they work to achieve safety, permanency, and well-being for rural children.

The brief explores many different aspects of rural child welfare practice, including the following:

  • Characteristics of rural communities
  • Social service considerations
  • Recruiting resource families
  • Preparing and supervising a rural child welfare workforce
