CWLA offers a variety of educational opportunities designed to advance quality services and innovation in child welfare and related fields.
As kinship care continues to be a primary and valuable option for children who cannot live with their parents, emphasis on kinship care policy, practice, and research is necessary to continue to enhance services and supports for kinship caregivers and families. This conference highlighted our collective knowledge of best practice, policy, program and service development, and identified areas for further research. The conference was held on September 17-19, 2014 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in New Orleans, LA.
This conference is an extraordinary opportunity to learn from featured evidence-informed/based practices and real world solutions that demonstrate successful thinking in support of children, youth and families. Conference highlights include Hill Day, uniquely designed roundtable sessions, stimulating plenary sessions, panel discussions, an engaging exhibit hall and Gala Dinner. This year’s conference will take place on April 27-29, 2015 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott, Arlington, VA. Be sure to look for our call for proposals and save the date!
