CWLA's bimonthly magazine, Children's Voice, covers national, state, and local news and issues that affect children, youth, and families.

Unlike any other publication, Children's Voice is designed for readers throughout the child welfare field, including executives and administrators, program staff, frontline workers, volunteers, and board members of public and private child welfare agencies; professionals in fields related to child welfare, including educators, pediatricians, mental health practitioners, and law enforcement and juvenile justice professionals; federal, state, and local policymakers; judges and court officials; foster care and adoptive parents; and lay advocates and others who work with children, youth, and families or are concerned about the issues that affect them.

Children's Voice began publication in 1985 as an 8-page membership newsletter. In 1991, CWLA expanded the Voice into a 32-page quarterly magazine aimed primarily at news and information of importance to its member agencies. Today, Children's Voice is a 40- to 48-page, four-color bimonthly magazine with a broad national audience.
