The Duke Endowment has launched its Child & Family Well-Being Grant Program for accredited organizations and nonprofit groups in North Carolina and South Carolina.
Areas of Work
Within Child and Family Well-Being, they focus their work in two main areas:
Prevention and early intervention for at-risk children: focuses on replicating evidence-based programs, (such as Incredible Years or Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and building North Carolina and South Carolina’s capacity to implement evidence-based models.
Out-of-home care: strives to help the child welfare system improve well-being through better assessment and the exclusive use of high quality providers that offer a range of services during and after care.
Their funding is divided into three broad categories:
- Replicating success: grants reflect the value they place on proven programs and effective practices. Proven programs are those with at least two randomized control trials with results demonstrating effectiveness that have been replicated in a real-world setting.
- Effective practices are all other programs whose evidence of effectiveness consists of only one randomized control trial, comparison group data, pre- and post-test results or other types of data.
- As they work to address persistent social problems, expand individual opportunity and provide essential support, they value established approaches with clear records of success and replicable models, including:
- Multisystemic Therapy (MST)
- Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
- Positive Parenting Program (Triple-P)
- Strengthening Families
- The Incredible Years
- Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
- Other proven approaches will be considered as well.
- Strengthening organizations: grants reflect the commitment to building the infrastructure of effective organizations and institutions. In the efforts to improve facilities, systems, management and operations, they are particularly interested in supporting opportunities that show great promise for long-term gains.
- Advancing innovation: grants reflect the investment in projects that advance innovation when high-achieving, successful models are lacking.
- Child and Family Well-Being works through accredited organizations and other nonprofit groups in North Carolina and South Carolina.
