Training Resource: NC Clearinghouse on Family and Child Well-Being

The North Carolina Clearinghouse on Family and Child Well-being website is dedicated to providing a central source of information about learning opportunities and training resources throughout North Carolina for those working to strengthen families and to prevent and respond to child maltreatment and family violence.

The Clearinghouse was established in 2008 at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Social Work with funding from the North Carolina Governor’s Crime Commission. Planning for the website began in 2006 with an initial grant from the North Carolina Governor’s Crime Commission. The Clearinghouse is housed within the Family and Children’s Resource Program of the Jordan Institute for Families.
