The National Foster Care Youth & Alumni Policy Council, a partnership project administered by FosterClub and Foster Care Alumni of America with support from Casey Family Programs, convenes to provide federal stakeholders with relevant and timely information as policies and procedures are created that will affect children and families throughout the country. The Council represents a collective viewpoint of youth and alumni who have experienced the child welfare system first-hand.
The Center on Immigration and Child Welfare aims to improve programs and policies related to immigrant children and families involved in the public child welfare system. Their work includes original research, resource development and dissemination, training and technical assistance, and national leadership, including sponsoring cross-sector conferences, workgroups, and advocacy.
