Catawba County Child Wellbeing Project

The Child Wellbeing Project is a research-based partnership between Catawba County (North Carolina) Social Services and The Duke Endowment to provide an array of post-care services to improve the quality of life for children who have exited Social Services’ custody to move to reunification, adoption, legal custody or guardianship. The long-term goal of the project is to improve well-being as evidenced by education, employment, stable housing, connection to family/community, access to health/mental health care, and wise life choices (absence of teen pregnancy, school drop-out, etc.). Post-care services include a Success Coach, Educational Advocate, Material Supports, Parent Child Interaction Therapy, and Adoption Therapy Groups, with the Success Coach serving as the foundational service that brings all other elements together.
