California Child Welfare Practice Model

The California Child Welfare Core Practice Model  (CPM) is a statewide effort, led by the counties, to develop and implement a framework to support child welfare practice and allow child welfare professionals to be more effective in their roles. The CPM is intended to guide practice, service delivery, and decision-making.
