North Carolina is currently beginning to implement three major reform efforts: Families First Prevention Services Act, state-mandated child welfare reform (Rylan’s Law), and the transformation of the state’s Medicaid system into managed care. Throughout the emerging reforms, families and advocates have identified the need for a central home to address concerns and complaints.
NC Child is seeking an undergraduate or graduate student intern to research child welfare approaches across the United States.
