The National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP) has added the Quality Parenting Initiative to PRiSM, an online resource that helps policymakers, advocates, and other early childhood leaders learn about promising infant-early childhood mental health policies and scaled initiatives.

The profile highlights QPI implementation in Washoe County, Nevada, and Minnesota, and includes information about the sites’ foster parent pre-service training, Fostering Relationships visitation model, early connection efforts between foster and birth parents, how QPI assisted with legislative changes, partnership planning, relationship building efforts not only within families, but community and agency engagement, kinship placement focus, and efforts to enlist diverse foster families, to name a few.
