ABOUT THE CHILD WELFARE LEAGUE OF AMERICA

CWLA is a powerful coalition of hundreds of private and public agencies serving children and families that are vulnerable since 1920. Our expertise, leadership and innovation on policies, programs, and practices help improve the lives of millions of children across the country. Our impact is felt worldwide.

OUR MISSION

CWLA leads and engages its network of public and private agencies and partners to advance policies, best practices and collaborative strategies that result in better outcomes for children, youth and families that are vulnerable.

Our vision is that every child will grow up in a safe, loving, and stable family.
Our focus is children and youth who may have experienced abuse, neglect, family disruption, or a range of other factors that jeopardize their safety, permanence, or well-being. CWLA also focuses on the families, caregivers, and the communities that care for and support these children.
