As the Executive Director of a social and human services agency meeting the needs of vulnerable children and families, our organization is a proud and long-time member of CWLA. CWLA is the nation's oldest membership based child welfare organization and, for over 90 years, has been a consistent, reliable and powerful voice for our nation's voiceless - vulnerable children, youth and families. As a board member of CWLA, I have had the privilege and opportunity to see first hand the amazing advocacy and lobbying efforts of this much needed and invaluable organization. In fact, due to CWLA's leadership and ability to effectively influence policy makers, our nation has made significant progress in adopting legislation that helps to ensure that the services and supports that states and municipalities need to protect children and help struggling families. CWLA works tirelessly to protect children from abuse and neglect, help them heal both physically and emotionally from the harm they have suffered, and help build hope for their futures - whether it be with their birth family or new adoptive families, or for youth who are aging out of foster care and entering into adulthood. CWLA is also the leading authority on research for high quality, evidence-based best practices in child welfare and sets vitally important standards to guide public and private agencies serving children and families. As a not for profit, CWLA depends upon generous financial support from donors so that it can continue to provide the strong advocacy needed to safeguard children and ensure that agencies serving them have the resources they need to ensure successful outcomes for our country's kids. Please support CWLA!!
