Project Abstract

The Colorado Office of Respondent Parents’ Counsel (ORPC) provides legal advocacy services to indigent parents involved in child welfare proceedings. The project is assessing the impact of ORPC’s interdisciplinary teams on child welfare permanency outcomes, safety, cost, and length of time in out-of-home care. This project is also building the internal capacity of ORPC to routinely evaluate the effectiveness of representation models and use evaluation findings to inform strategic planning.
