Differential Response Leadership Council

The Differential Response Leadership Council (DRLC) is a subcommittee of the Child Welfare Sub-PAC. DRLC was formed in 2009 to advise and make recommendations on the implementation of differential response in Colorado. Since the initial implementation of differential response, DRLC has continued to advise DR practice in Colorado at a director and manager level. DRLC has been involved in moving DR from a pilot program to a practice model that incorporates organizational processes and social work practices. In 2016, DRLC became a committee that reports to Child Welfare Sub-PAC and will be instrumental in the ongoing needs for building consistent differential response practice throughout Colorado.
