Immigrants and Refugees in Child Welfare: A Special Issue of CWLA's Child Welfare Journal
Immigrant and refugee families and children represent the fastest growing portion of the U.S. population. Although public child welfare services agencies can play a pivotal role in providing necessary services to these families, too often they are unprepared to meet the special challenges presented by immigrants and refugees. In this special issue of Child Welfare, educators, researchers, direct services providers, and community activists address the unique needs of the immigrant and refugee population, sharing their knowledge to promote culturally competent practices, polices, and strategies.
