About Child Welfare Watch

Child Welfare Watch provides in-depth investigative reporting, news and analysis on children and family services in New York and beyond. We track the real-life impact of public policy and reform initiatives on families and the people who work with them. Our groundbreaking coverage has contributed to the creation of more responsive, more effective child and family services systems in New York.

Our reporting and research findings also inform the recommendations and solutions included in each edition. These are drafted in collaboration withChild Welfare Watch advisory board, which includes a wide spectrum of nonprofit leaders, former public officials, scholars, parents and advocates.

Child Welfare Watch was founded in 1997. It is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Child Welfare Fund, The Ira W. DeCamp Foundation, the Viola W. Bernard Foundation and the Sirus Fund.
