About Us
Institute for Human Services (IHS)

Founded in 1977, the Institute for Human Services (IHS) has worked extensively throughout North America and Eastern Europe to build national, state, and local capacity to assure protection and permanence for abused and neglected children and their families. Through our umbrella organization, the North American Resource Center for Child Welfare (NARCCW), we provide services that include policy development, research and evaluation, strategic planning, the development of competency-based inservice training systems, curricula, and training resources, organizational consultation, and forensic case assessment and testimony.
