Child Welfare involves
Child Welfare Information Gateway connects child welfare and related professionals to comprehensive information and resources to help protect children and strengthen families. We feature the latest on topics from prevention to permanency, including child abuse and neglect, foster care, and adoption.
The National DEC helps break the cycle of abuse and neglect by empowering practitioners to identify and respond to children living in dangerous drug environments.
The people hurt most by drugs and alcohol don’t even use them; they are the CHILDREN of alcoholics and other drug dependent parents. The National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA) believes that none of these vulnerable children should grow up in isolation and without support. NACoA is the national nonprofit 501 (c) 3 membership and affiliate organization working on behalf of children of alcohol and drug dependent parents.
The National Resource Center for Mental Health Promotion and Youth Violence Prevention (National Resource Center) offers resources and technical assistance to states, tribes, territories, and local communities to promote the overall well-being of children, youth, and their families. We believe that, with the right resources and support, all communities – regardless of their ZIP code – can promote positive outcomes for children, youth, and families.
