At CWLA, we know that collaboration is key to improving the lives of children and families. That’s why we foster and connect a diverse coalition of child-serving professionals, who partner with us to fulfill our mission of advancing policies, strategies, and best practices that result in better outcomes for children, youth, and families.
CWLA provides members with the guidance and resources necessary to build on what works and invent what’s needed. Members influence the direction of child welfare by connecting with federal lawmakers, serving on national committees, and sharing ideas with peers around the country. Staff at all levels of member organizations can fully participate in membership benefits–ensuring the families they serve have a national voice.
CWLA invites everyone entrusted with the well-being of children to join us, and create change that matters for those who need it most.
Read more about how CWLA membership can benefit your organization by reading our Membership Booklet, or by emailing MemberServices@cwla.org.
CWLA understands that no two child-serving organizations are alike. That’s why we’ve designed our membership to work for agencies that are public or private; provide direct services or connect families with those that do; work in advocacy, research, or training; and for corporations, foundations or concerned citizens. Each has their own role to play in helping families flourish.
CWLA membership dues are calculated with these differences in mind, ensuring that everyone can participate in forming collaborative strategies to secure bright futures for children.
