SafeMeasures® Expands to New York City
NCCD is partnering with the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) in New York City to implement SafeMeasures®, NCCD’s web-based data dashboard service, later this year. The effort is part of ACS’s commitment to help child welfare workers use data to provide the best services to vulnerable families. SafeMeasures allows workers to access near-real-time data in order to manage their caseloads and tasks. Data dashboards help supervisors and managers prioritize the highest-need families, while administrators can learn about agencywide service delivery and compliance. NCCD looks forward to its role in helping ACS ensure the safety and well-being of New York City’s children.

Blog Series Addresses "Real-World SDM"
Julie Davis, MSW, a senior program specialist with NCCD, authors a blog series that connects her past experience as a child welfare worker with her now-expert knowledge of the Structured Decision Making® (SDM) system. Titled “Real-World SDM,” the series demonstrates the usefulness of decision-support assessments throughout the life of a child welfare case. The blog series is available here
Alaska Partners
Alaska Partners Visit NCCD 
NCCD hosted two Association of Village Council Presidents (AVCP) child protective services workers from Bethel, Alaska, in early August. These clients visited NCCD’s office in Madison, Wisconsin, to work on the implementation of Structured Decision Making® prevention assessments. The AVCP makes up an area roughly the size of New York State in southwestern Alaska and is home to 56 federally recognized indigenous tribes. NCCD is proud of its work in Alaska and with Indigenous peoples across North America.
