District Permanency Collaboratives
A District Permanency Collaborative (DPC) is a local group comprised of judges, attorneys, guardian ad litem, family court, child welfare leaders, and other stakeholders as needed. The focus of the DPC is to discuss permanency data (Permanency Performance Profile) and plans for improving permanency of children in juvenile abuse / neglect / dependency cases. Collaboration among these stakeholders increases safe and timely permanent exits from foster care. Each judicial district and / or county organizes their own DPC and may cover the focus topics in a regular meeting by another name.
Tools and resources, including the Permanency Performance Profile for every county, are available from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Division of Social Services.
The mission of the North Carolina Juvenile Court Improvement Program (CIP) is to improve the performance of North Carolina's juvenile courts in abuse and neglect cases so that safety, permanence, and well-being for each child are achieved in a fair and timely manner.
