Overview

2020 was an unprecedented year. The continuing COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on children and families who are the most vulnerable—and on the organizations that serve them. But many child- and family-serving agencies, workers, caregivers, and others have stepped up to the challenges presented and created new and innovative ways to work through them.

What did we learn—both the good and the bad—about our ability to serve children and families? How can we build on and leverage this learning?  What successful practices and programs should continue in 2021? Together, we need to strive to reach new heights for all children while recognizing that although all children and families were negatively impacted in 2020, the pandemic has taken an extreme toll on children and families who are the most vulnerable.

Join us online May 4-6, 2021 for the CWLA 2021 Virtual Conference: Lessons Learned from 2020: Reaching New Heights for Children and Families. We look forward to exploring the numerous service enhancements and innovations that have been developed by child welfare and other allied fields in response to COVID-19, discussing the successful strategies and approaches that can be integrated into our service work moving forward, and identifying the practice, policy, and funding changes that may be required to help organizations implement and adapt.

Register today to reserve your seat! Attendees also will have access to recordings of the virtual conference presentations. Contact us at CWLA2021@cwla.org for assistance.
