I joined the Board of CWLA because I had been a foster parent for 12 years and wanted to represent that demographic on the Board. What I discovered was an organization, staff and Board passionate about improving the lives of children and families, particularly those in the most need. It was a revelation to see such commitment, as well as strong advocacy and programs on such a small budget. Even as CWLA had to lay off staff, the remaining staffers redoubled their efforts to keep serving the needs of children. I am so honored to be on the Board with a stellar group of people who are devoting their lives to child welfare. I can unequivocally state that children in the US are much better off because CWLA exists.
