Welcome

The Title IV- E Prevention Services Clearinghouse was established by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to conduct an objective and transparent review of research on programs and services intended to provide enhanced support to children and families and prevent foster care placements.

The Prevention Services Clearinghouse, developed in accordance with the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) as codified in Title IV-E of the Social Security Act, rates programs and services as well-supported, supported, promising, or does not currently meet criteria.

Search the newly released programs and services rated as well-supported, supported, promising, or does not currently meet criteria. Healthy Families America, Methadone Maintenance Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing are still under review and ratings will be released soon. Stay tuned!
