Welcome to the CEBC:
California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare

Program Registry

The primary goal of the CEBC Program Registry is to provide a searchable database of programs that can be utilized by professionals that serve children and families involved with the child welfare system. The programs are arranged by topic area. Within each topic area is a definition and clear information on the requirements (e.g., target population and goals) that must be met by each program in order to be included in the specific topic area. The requirements for which outcomes the research evidence on a program must demonstrate in order to be rated within each topic area are also listed. Each individual program description contains easily accessible and vital information, including, at a minimum, a CEBC Scientific Rating, citations and summaries of relevant published peer-reviewed research studies conducted on the program, a brief description of the program, and training and contact information.
