When a reporter from a state that has had a string of recent child abuse tragedies asks, "How many cases can a worker be responsible for without jeopardizing safety?"...

Or when an agency executive, looking to diversify her agency's services, asks, "What are the core components of an intercountry adoption program? What standards should I follow in designing the program and recruiting and training staff?"...

Or when a state foster care manager, updating his agency's manual for foster care workers, asks, "What is the current thinking on how soon and how often children should have contact with their parents after entering foster care?"...

...CWLA Standards might be their most valuable resource!

The CWLA National Blueprint articulates the ultimate goal for all children, youth, and families, and acknowledges that it will take the combined knowledge, skills, and resources of all systems, services, communities, and individuals to ensure that all children will grow up safely, in loving families and supportive communities, with everything they need to flourish-and with connections to their culture, ethnicity, race and language. We encourage everyone to use this new foundation for our Standards of Excellence as a framework for all children, youth, and families to flourish.
