Holmes Appointed to National Advisory Committee to Improve Child Welfare

Megan R. Holmes, PhD, Assistant Professor, was appointed in March to the National Advisory Committee (NAC) of the National Quality Improvement Center on Child Welfare Involved Children and Families Experiencing Domestic Violence (QIC-CW/DV), a collaborative project led by Futures Without Violence (FUTURES) to research, analyze, and identify best practices for improving how child welfare agencies, domestic violence programs and other partners work collaboratively to improve outcomes for families experiencing domestic violence.

Dr. Holmes joins other experts in child welfare and domestic violence research, practice, and policy along with judicial leaders and those experienced in tribal law and practice, racial equity, and early childhood to provide strategic guidance at key points as the QIC-CW/DV is implemented.

The project is funded by a grant from the Children’s Bureau of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and will work collaboratively with The Center for the Study of Social Policy, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, the University of Kansas School of Social Welfare, and the Center for Health & Safety Culture at Montana State University.
