The Migration and Child Welfare Network
Leading child welfare organizations have formed the Migration and Child Welfare Network to improve the effectiveness of the field's response to migration.
The network has four main areas of focus--advocacy and policy, promising practices, research, and transnational relations--each with activities planned for the next two years, including a conference in 2008. Members share knowledge and strategies and participate in collaborative efforts to improve services for immigrant families in the child welfare system.
Members can join for free as individuals, agency representatives, or both. Contact the American Humane Association at CWMN@americanhumane.org for more information.
Founding members include CWLA, the American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law, the American Humane Association, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Chapin Hall Center for Children, the Family Violence Prevention Fund, Hunter College School of Social Work, Immigrant Legal Resource Center, International Social Services, Loyola University at Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, University of Texas at Austin, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops/Migration and Refugee Services, and the public child welfare agencies in Washington, DC, and Illinois.
