QPI Louisiana

The Quality Parenting Initiative (QPI) is an approach to strengthening foster care by refocusing on quality parenting for all children in the child welfare system. This initiative redefines the expectations and provides resources and tools that caregivers need to provide the loving, committed, skilled care that children need.

When QPI is successful, caregivers, DCFS staff, and birth parents work as a team to support children and youth.

In 2017, Louisiana became the first state to adopt QPI as a statewide approach.
