Child Welfare

Child Welfare is a division of social work that is focused on the safety, permanence and well-being of children who have been abused and/or neglected. Child Welfare specialists work with children and their families on levels from prevention to intervention to ensure each child is safe and raised in a loving and stable home environment. At Child and Family Charities, our Child Welfare division is comprised of Foster Care Services, Adoption Services and Foster Home Certification Services.

Child Welfare Primary Goals Are To:

  • To provide children with safety from abuse and neglect
  • To provide children with a sense of permanence through reunification with their birth family or through an alternative plan of adoption
  • To ensure the well-being of children are met by meeting their primary and secondary needs while services are in place
  • To recruit and retain quality foster families to provide the necessary love and care to children who have been abused and neglected
