Focus Areas

NCCD works in many ways to achieve its mission and goals. NCCD’s primary activities are research and analysis based on social service agency data, training and technical assistance, and developing and maintaining tools that support social service workers.

NCCD undertakes these activities in the following five social service focus areas.

While these focus areas represent a broad spectrum of social services, NCCD’s longstanding experience shows that these systems are interrelated and that involvement in one can indicate involvement in others—especially between the child welfare and juvenile/criminal justice systems.
