The Crisis in Rural Child Welfare: A Special Issue of CWLA's Child Welfare JournalBy:
Charles L. Baker
Due to budget cuts, services for rural children are often nonexistent, and rural America's economy and infrastructures, such as fire and police protection and public water and sewers, are weak. This special issue of Child Welfare seeks to inspire and illuminate both rural and urban child welfare workers. It addresses child welfare work in farming communities, in frontier communities, and with Navajo youth, among other areas. This wide-ranging yet thorough inspection of rural child welfare will add a great deal of serious research and well-informed practice to a field that has long been neglected in American child welfare.
