National Blueprint for Excellence in Child Welfare

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. The CWLA National Blueprint is the foundation for our Standards of Excellence and a framework for all children, youth and families to flourish.

Standards of Excellence for Child Welfare Services

The CWLA Standards of Excellence for Child Welfare Services provide goals for the continuing improvement of services for children and families. They represent those practices considered to be most desirable in providing services. Standards are useful in planning, organizing, and administering service; in establishing state and local licensing requirements; and in determining the requirements for accreditation. Standards provide content for teaching and training child welfare and other related fields, in in-service training and staff development programs, and in the orientation of boards and volunteers. They can help to explain and justify expenditures and budget requests to fundraising bodies, and appropriation requests to legislatures. There are 13 volumes of the CWLA Standards of Excellence (All Standards can be ordered online from the Webstore): (All Standards can be ordered online from the Webstore)
