The Mission of the University Consortium for Children and Families (UCCF), funded through the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), is to advance the well-being of vulnerable children and families through advanced knowledge, transformation of professional practice, leadership development, and community collaboration.


Our purpose is to increase professional skills and knowledge of child welfare managers, supervisors and social workers through academy and in-service trainings and to recruit and prepare child welfare worker interns for social work at DCFS.
