Child Welfare

The KU School of Social Welfare’s Center for Children & Families has a long standing history of local and national activities in the area of child welfare. This nationally recognized work has spanned all aspects of child welfare policy and practice, including safety, permanency, and child and family well-being. Current and former projects have informed a number of issues that are of central importance to children and families involved in the child welfare system. Examples include parental substance abuse, child and family mental health, foster family care, the juvenile court, workforce development, and web-based management information systems.
