McCormick FLI

The McCormick Family Life Institute, named for the family that founded BFCS, is the agency's research and training arm.

McCormick conducts ongoing research on the unmet needs of families in communities around Maryland and Delaware by analyzing referrals to the agency, tracking the improvement of families and children currently in our programs, and surveying former clients to measure their progress since discharge.

McCormick also coordinates training for BFCS staff, volunteers, and other groups in the core services of the agency, such as wraparound case management, Parenting Power, CPR/first aid, and crisis intervention. Training is provided to churches and other community groups as requested.

McCormick advises churches and community groups on "best practices" regarding staffing and supervision of child care programs.
