As a board member and longtime supporter, I remain impressed with singular desire and focus of the organization to improve the lives of children and families. They are particularly strong in advocating at the national level for policies that help all families and improve the welfare of all children.
As a board member, I remain very impressed with the reach and scope of this organization despite its limited size. CWLA remains the preeminent leader in advocating best practices for children and families in our country. Its work in standards setting, publications, and training serve its members and the entire field. This organization deserves and needs all our support.
CWLA provides a necessary service of being the primary voice for children and families involved in the child welfare system. For over 100 years CWLA has led the nation in helping to establish standards of care for the safety, psychological and physical well-being of children in foster care and children with histories of abuse or neglect. Without the voice of this long-standing nonprofit, our society's most desperate children would likely be voiceless in a society that might easily forget about them.
CWLA has served as a leader in establishing standards of care for our society's most challenged children, including adopted children and children in foster care. With an annual conference that draws professionals across disciplines from across the United States, CWLA continues to use research and innovations to raise awareness of current areas that challenge work in child welfare and has recently begun to extend its reach to a global perspective of improving the care of all children regardless of nationality and race. Soon celebrating 100 years since its founding, CWLA fulfills a need unparalleled by any other organization in the United States.
CWLA provides advocacy for and information to the field on current national laws and policies. CWLA is a great resource for child welfare organizations providing training, consultation and resources on best practices.
For almost 100 years, the CWLA continues to fulfill its important role in inspiring the field of child welfare to aspire to excellence. The bedrock of the CWLA and what gives it its enduring leadership role in the field is its continued commitment to strong public-private partnerships. From standard setting to national conferences to long-standing publications, CWLA works to connect providers, systems and researchers to move the field forward. I have had the opportunity to work with and serve on the board of many nonprofit organizations in my career, but CWLA stands out as a truly exemplary organization.
CWLA has been the unified voice representing the common issues and values of public and private child welfare agencies. CWLA has a long and distinguished record as the champion of standards of for best practice. CWLA offers its Blueprint for Excellence in Child Welfare as a vision for our country in recognizing and addressing the needs of vulnerable children and their families in a comprehensive and inspirational vision.
I have watched the dedication and commitment of the leadership at this organization and it is nothing short of amazing. The kids, supporter of kids and advocates are in good hands with CWLA.
I know CWLA to be an outstanding organization with an exceptional mission – to lead and engage a national network of agencies, organizations and community partners to advance policies, best practices and collaborative strategies that result in better outcomes for children, youth and families that are vulnerable. They do great work! Please join in supporting this amazing nonprofit.
CWLA is a wonderful organization with a long history of helping children. They have great publications. I especially like Living in an Inspired World which shares stories from youth in foster care.
Thanks to CWLA and their hundreds of member agencies for providing a strong voice for the needs of children and families.
CWLA is an amazing non-profit lead by an amazing group of people. The leadership truly cares about the welfare of our children, and will do what's needed to make sure they are consistently protected. Support of this organization, will reach so many children and families. They need "cheerleaders" and advocates so they can continue to do their good work.
CWLA is a powerful coalition of public and nonprofit agencies from around the nation that advocates for the well being of children and families that are vulnerable. Since 1920 CWLA's expertise, leadership and innovation on policies, programs, and practices has helped to improve the lives of millions of children across the country. Its mission of promoting the well being of children is as necessary today as it was when it was founded nearly 100 years ago.
I am a member and board member of CWLA because this is an organization that is committed to improving the lives of vulnerable children. Throughout its 95 year history, CWLA and its members have not wavered from that focus and commitment. CWLA's tireless advocacy work on behalf of better outcomes for children is exemplary.
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.
