Child Welfare League of America, Inc., aka CWLA
October 9, 2013
As past President of the Board of the Child Welfare League of America, I can attest to its importance to all of the field of Child Welfare. It is said that if the League did not exist, we would have to create it. It is the voice in Washington on Capital Hill of all member agencies in the nation serving the neediest children in our country. It is their knowledge and expertise plus the input from their member agencies which greatly influences legislation affecting our children. It is the League which writes and publishes the standards of service which agencies use as their guide to delivering the highest quality of service to the children they serve. It is a convener of service providers so that they can learn from each other about best practices. It is a national voice on the issues facing this disenfranchised population. I have been proud to be a volunteer with the Child Welfare League of America and we should be grateful they exist as a voice for our children.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I think the League is on an excellent path - using a committed membership of quality child welfare agencies to influence and inform our nation of the complexities and answers to these tough questions and also to help the field serve our children the best way possible.
