Who We Are

The Permanency Practice Leadership (PPL) consulting team has extensive experience working directly with youth, families, staff, and systems to ensure relational, physical, and legal permanence.

Our customized services range from one-on-one coaching, case consultations, training, strategic consulting, and multi-year engagements.

We understand current and relevant child welfare scholarship, while knowing how it is applied in practice and provide organizational develop and change management strategies to make it stick.

We center our work in building authentic relationships with young people, families, and professionals – customizing each of our engagements to align with local context and goals.

The team utilizes best practices that can be applied to front-end prevention services as well as, youth who have experienced foster or residential care. We use the Plummer Youth Promise Permanency Model to help youth stay home, go home, or find home.
