CDF-NY Child Welfare
Children in the child welfare system, especially Black and Brown children and youth, often face adversities because of systemic issues, leading to high removal rates and inadequate family support, hindering their development and future prospects.
We envision a child welfare system that prioritizes family integrity, stability, and children’s holistic needs, promoting their well-being, education, and health.
Collaborating with fellow advocates, we work towards reforms ensuring children’s safety, stronger family bonds, and improved well-being. By promoting transparency, adequate resourcing, and evidence-based policies, we aim for systemic change and long-term success for every young person.
