Community Building and 21st Century Child Welfare: A Special Issue of CWLA's Child Welfare Journal
Community building is an essential part of child and family practice. Child- and family-serving systems help hundreds of thousands of children and families every day, but no one system has the mandate, resources, or reach to address the personal issues or social and community conditions that families involved with the child welfare system face. This special issue of Child Welfare advances community-building knowledge and practices, presents several models of community-building initiatives among public and private sector providers in multiple sites, offers promising resources for community builders, and presents practice briefs to further advance community-building knowledge, innovations, and strategies.
