The mission of NET Community Care CUA is to strengthen families and increase protective factors of parents and caretakers through active community partnerships and collaboration.
The NET Community Care vision is that strengthened community partnerships will further develop resources that support youth and families. Communities will improve the safety, permanency, and well-being outcomes for youth and families.
NET Community Care was created to implement the first “Community Umbrella Agency” (CUA) in the city of Philadelphia. Selected by the Department of Human Services to launch a major transformation of child welfare services, NET Community Care is committed to the goals of Philadelphia’s “Improving Outcomes for Children” initiative. We believe that positive outcomes are achieved when services are family-centered, community-based, culturally competent, integrated, timely, and accountable for results. This was and is perhaps the most significant systems change effort Philadelphia has undertaken in decades. To read more about IOC, click here. The key components or services offered at CUAs include case management, community engagement, parent cafes, team conferencing, and Community Advisory Boards (CABs).
NET Community Care was eventually awarded two IOC CUA regions and serve the 25th and 22nd police districts of Philadelphia (see map).
