Child Welfare Advocacy Coalition
CWAC Membership and Operating Framework
Work with the Executive Branch and the Legislature to decrease the number of children who enter the child welfare system; ensure that children receive appropriate and quality care while in the child welfare system; safely return children home or place them with a permanent family more quickly; and successfully transition youth exiting the child welfare system.
Maximize consumer voice in every CWAC decision and champion the inclusion of consumer voice in systems change and legislative advocacy.
View every CWAC decision through the lens of addressing racial disproportionality, gender equality and the best interest of children and families.
