Child Welfare Institute

Child Welfare Institute (CWI), a nationally focused, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing quality consultation and training services to state, local and private child welfare and human service agencies.

For more than two decades, CWI have been putting ideas into action to help our clients succeed. Their focus is on enhancing system performance, and they are dedicated to working collaboratively with clients to create effective solutions that achieve measurable results, ensuring the safety, permanency and well-being of children and families nationwide

Child Welfare Institute are here because state and local government agencies, as well as private child welfare agencies face monumental challenges in administering systems that assure safety, permanence and well-being for children.

The CWI's experience with the public and private sectors is wide-ranging. For 13 years, CWI operated two national resource centers under cooperative agreements with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services - The National Resource Center for Foster Care and Residential Care (1985-1990) and the National Resource Center for Child Maltreatment (1996-2004). They have helped make a difference in almost all state child welfare systems.

Today, CWI remain dedicated to working collaboratively with clients to achieve measurable results and ensure the safety, permanency and well-being of children and families nationwide.
