National Institute for Permanent Family Connectedness

The National Institute for Permanent Family Connectedness (NIPFC), was formed in 2010 to continue and further the work of the California Permanency for Youth Project (CPYP), in alliance with Kevin Campbell and Seneca Family of Agencies. Our primary emphasis is to inform, influence, and improve policy and practice so that every youth and family have a team/network who determines and supports permanency, belonging, and connectedness.

We offer training, consultation, and coaching on a number of topics within the field and can customize a package to meet your needs. Additionally, we contract with public and private agencies to provide detailed and curated internet based searches that support due diligence and reasonable efforts work to identify, locate, and notify families and counties in accordance to state and federal child welfare laws.
