What I want to do

Ensure realistic rules and regulations for foster families so they can do the work the need to do for children who must enter the foster care system.

What matters to me

A better system to meet the needs of children who have been abused/negected and the foster parents who serve these children.

What inspires me

Children who are victims of abuse/neglect and the foster parents who help them understand the abuse and move on to lead a full and happy life.

Child Welfare League of America, Inc., aka CWLA
June 19, 2012

In my role as President of the National Foster Parent Association, I work with various staff members from CWLA on a fairly regular basis. What a pleasure to do so! The staff at CWLA are experts in their fields and their assistance with needs, concerns, training, standards, legislation and pubic policy etc is always timely and relevant. My hope is that CWLA will continue to grow and continue to provide the excellent services and supports they currently provide to so many across this great country. I firmly believe their impact on Capitol Hill is significant and I am proud to work with them to achieve excellence for all children in America.
