We at Foster Forward were honored to accept the National Blueprint for Excellence Award from the Child Welfare League of America for our Works Wonders program. The award is presented to an individual, community partner and agency innovator with a demonstrated commitment to the principles of the CWLA National Blueprint for Excellence in Child Welfare.
“The CWLA National Blueprint for Excellence in Child Welfare serves as the foundation and framework for achieving the vision that all children will grow up safely, in loving families, with everything they need to flourish–and with connections to their culture, ethnicity, race and language. This vision for the future of child welfare requires that all children, whether they receive child welfare services, or are at risk for child abuse or neglect, will grow up safely in loving families and supportive communities.”
We are thankful for our incredible youth, staff, board of directors, and partners including RI Dept of Labor and Training and RI DCYF for all their support!
