The Child Welfare League of America is One of the Oldest Organizations Working to Protect Our Children

Cool Story - The Child Welfare League of America is One of the Oldest Organizations Working to Protect Our Children

 

The Child Welfare League of America is an organization with a dream. That dream is to ensure that all children are able to grow up with a family that loves them. Since 1920, the CWLA has been working toward this goal using their endorsement of child welfare programs and strategies. They work closely with children and youth whose well-being is in jeopardy in any way. However, the CWLA has not been doing their important work all alone. They work together with other organizations to aid children and families who need help. For 100 years, the CWLA has put plans and policies in place that have saved millions of children.  

 

The Child Welfare League of America got its start in 1920. Ever since then, they have been the heroes neglected and abused children have so desperately needed. The CWLA believes these children in America should be their primary concern, and they want everyone to feel that way. Today, there are millions of children who aren’t able to have their basic needs met. Even worse, each year, 2.8 million children are subject to terrible abuse and mistreatment. The CWLA’s mission is to create a world in which children never have to suffer again. They believe that we all need to collaborate to make changes for our children. 

 

In 2012 and 2013, the CWLA helped to create the CWLA National Blueprint for Excellence in Child Welfare. The purpose of this document is to create incentive for communities and governments to change. To help them understand more about the parts they play in the child welfare system, and what more they can do to aid children. The National Blueprint is also the framework for the quality of the programs and policies being put in place. The staff working at the CWLA are their greatest assets. Some staff members share their knowledge to their fellow organizations, while others advocate for policies to benefit children and combat those that would hurt children. The CWLA has a great number of programs and services designed to help children in need. From adoption to daycare, they have everything children, teens, and their families would need in any given situation.   

 

One important part of the National Blueprint are its policies on protecting children and their families. The main belief of this concept is as follows: “It is the responsibility of all members of society to work toward the shared goal of advancing the fundamental rights and needs of children. As a core standard of this principle children must be protected from abuse, neglect, maltreatment, and abduction. Achieving these goals is a Shared Responsibility that requires the Leadership, Engagement and Participation of the larger community in order to ensure the safety, permanency, and well-being of all children with equal emphasis on all three. One cannot take precedence over another.” According to the CWLA, children are as much human beings as adults are. As such, they need to have basic rights provided to them. Basic rights include food, health care, and official schooling. Children also have the right to be free from abuse and mistreatment. The government needs to take action if it feels like a child’s rights have been violated.
