Vulnerable children and families have always looked to community faith organizations during crisis. We are aware that churches, mosques, synagogues and other faith entities comprise the natural support networks that help to create the fabric of any community. CWLA’s National Faith-Based Advisory Committee will work with us to intentionally engage faith communities in the work of child and family advocacy. The Advisory Committee also will assist us in identifying and/or developing resources to assure a faith perspective in CWLA conferences, trainings, and materials. Additionally, we are hopeful that the Advisory Committee will give input for conducting research on effective models for engaging faith communities in child welfare services.
