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.
Since 1921 The Child Welfare League of America has been a major force in setting the highest standards for children in the child welfare system. Instrumental in the first federal legislation to provide benefits to mothers and children through present advocacy efforts with its Blueprint for Excellence in Child Welfare, CWLA has led efforts to expand and protect our most vulnerable children. The annual CWLA National Conference offers the opportunity for child welfare workers across the country to come together and learn the latest research from their colleagues while gaining the perspective of the strengths and challenges that face child welfare in states as far apart as Maine and California. It is hard to imagine what the field of child welfare would look like without the leadership and advocacy this organization. CWLA has been a leader in establishing guidelines to work with children and families facing adversities such as poverty, psychiatric illness, substance use and challenges most people face at some time in their life. I'm so grateful to be part of this work and for the greater dedication of 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!
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.
This is an exceptional non-profit, representing the most vulnerable children and families from both the public and private sector. They are doing very important work and should be recognized for their efforts.
CWLA is an exceptional organization, serving some of the most vulnerable children in our country. Their breadth of knowledge and depth of expertise is unparalleled in the industry.
I'm particularly fond of The Children's Memorial Flag Campaign. I have watched with interest every year and am proud to see such tremendous engagement nationwide. It's not an easy topic to stomach, but such an important issue that needs to be eradicated.
Thank goodness we have an organization that serves the abused, neglected, and vulnerable children in this country. Keep up the good work, CWLA.
