Child Welfare Network

The Child Welfare Network has at its core the interests of every child in Nevada’s child welfare system:  we seek to create public accountability and better outcomes for the children and their families that it exists to serve.

The Child Welfare Network’s mission is to:

Support information-sharing by providing a forum where individuals and organizations concerned about children in Nevada’s child welfare system can exchange resources, ideas problems and solutions through learning from one another and providing all members an opportunity to be heard;

Promote collaboration among service providers, county and state administrators, educators, parents and foster parents, youth, private funders and concerned citizens with the collective focus on the best interests of  children who are fundamentally our constituents; and,

Take action that leads to real results by advocating with a united voice on child welfare issues to improve services that respond to the needs of children and families in Nevada.
