Her work with the program focused on managing initiatives and providing support to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and its private agency partners in the areas of quality improvement and outcomes monitoring. Green-Rogers led the design and implementation of the Illinois Private Agency Continuous Quality Improvement Capacity Assessment commissioned by the department to assess the ability of private child welfare agencies across the state to self-monitor and use CQI mechanisms to improve performance. The findings from the assessment process were used to inform CQI capacity building efforts within the department and the provider community.
