I appreciate the work CWLA does for America's most vulnerable children. Creating and supporting families improves not only the lives of those directly involved, but ameliorates our country as a whole.
I am very pleased to support CWLA's vision that every child will grow up in a safe, loving, and stable family.
I am so glad there is an organization who looks out for abused, neglected and vulnerable children and their families. Keep up the good work, CWLA!
Happy to support the Child Welfare League of America, giving a voice to America's most vulnerable children and families.
Fantastic organization! Committed and creative leadership is why they are the nation's premiere advocate for our youth and families. Keep on keeping on.
Thankfully there's an organization whose mission is to advocate for those whose voices get lost because they're children. It's everyone's moral responsibility to help those in need, most especially children.
I am somewhat familiar with CWLA's publications area, and am impressed by the variety and numbers of publications they produce for the care of the child. Not only do they produce absolutely vital training and guideline materials for the care of children in the foster and adoption systems, they produce, AND BACK UP with heart, materials to deepen understanding and improve the care of abused and neglected kids.
To this end, even their picture books for adults to read with children are filled with tenderness and relationship building, and compassion themes - like The Kissing Hand (they originally brought to existence, sold over 4 million now!), The Giant King, and recently Happy Mamas.
I wholeheartedly believe in CWLA and applaud their rich heart of giving to the future of our children.
When I came into the child welfare field over 15 years ago, the first conference I attended was a CWLA national conference. It was the best way to learn best practices and engage with other leaders to improve the lives of children and families in our country. Years later, I believe even more strongly that our country's vulnerable children and families need CWLA. It is the preeminent voice speaking out for best practices and advocating for children. It's why I enthusiastically joined the board in 2010 and am privileged to serve as the current board chair.
I continue to be impressed by the work of this small but mighty organization working on behalf of children and families. The recent National Kinship Conference is a good example of the leading edge work being done by CWLA. With an unrelenting focus on best practices, insightful and effective advocacy, and speaking out for what's best for children and families, CWLA is making a real difference for children and families in America and abroad.
I'm so glad we have an organization that serves our most vulnerable children - and their families. Thank you, CWLA
Since 1985, I have had the privilege of working for organizations that have all been members of the Child Welfare League of America. I am extremely proud of this vitally important affiliation, primarily because CWLA continues to be "THE VOICE" and leading advocate for America's most vulnerable children, youth and families, as it has been since it was established in 1920. In fact, there is no other organization in the country that has had anywhere near the level of impact or success in promoting and gaining passage of the most vital and significant federal policies for safeguarding and advancing at-risk children and families. Likewise, the extraordinary leadership and supports CWLA provides its members is unparalleled, leading to truly transformative and highly impactful work on the local, state and federal levels for its public and private member organizations.
For over 90 years, CWLA has been the leading voice for our nation's most vulnerable children, youth and families. I am proud and honored to serve alongside the organization's dedicated volunteer leadership team in support of its incredible CEO and staff, as they carry on the mission of ensuring that all children and youth have the opportunity to grow and thrive in safe, healthy and nurturing environments.
