Child Welfare Advocacy & Information
Children are among the most vulnerable populations in our society. Trauma, mental health struggles and system involvement add multiple levels of vulnerability. As stewards of these children, it is necessary for us to advocate for their best interests by influencing public policy to support access to critical support services.
