Institute for Human Services Center for Child Welfare Policy TRAINet Training Resource Family Trust Clinic













Programs and Partnerships

Since 1977, the Institute for Human Services (IHS) has worked tirelessly throughout the United States and Canada to provide training resources necessary to ensure the highest standards in child welfare toward ensuring safety for children and permanency for families. 

In 2004, IHS Director Dr. Ronald C. Hughes and Program Manager, Dr. Judith S. Rycus took their commitment a step further by providing those same training resources to international and multidisciplinary child advocates. 

Now, in collaboration with four participating countries which include Ukraine, Belarus, Russia and Kyrgyzstan, IHS is helping these new international partners build capacity and teaching them the fundamental concepts necessary to work with abused, neglected and sexually abused children and their families.  



Our International Partners include:

Lamb International

International Leadership and Development Center

Father's House International Charity Foundation

Every Child Ukraine

Partnership for Every Child
