The Child Welfare League of America delivers creative, practical, management-focused and practice-oriented consultation and technical assistance to help child serving organizations and entities in the public and private sector achieve better outcomes for children.
CWLA’s consultation team works nationwide to help build stronger organizations and communities so that children are safer, have needed opportunities for healthy development and well-being, and so that they and their families – including parents, foster and adoptive families, relatives and other caregivers — have the services and supports they need to flourish.
Believing that improvements at the practice, program, organizational, and systems levels are best approached through a collaborative process; CWLA’s consultation and technical assistance services are based on the unique needs of individual organizations and communities. CWLA consultants work directly with an agency’s staff, administrators, board members, elected officials and the community to develop creative and effective approaches to practice improvement, service delivery, administration, and leadership.
Grounded in CWLA’s National Standards of Excellence in Child Welfare, our goal is to achieve positive outcomes for children, youth, and families, and for the organizations and communities that support them. Our project plans provide clearly-defined work processes that guide our work and drive specific services and products that deliver results.
