Child Welfare

Every year more than 700,000 children are abused or neglected, and each day 1,200 children are removed from their families to enter foster care. The consequences of child maltreatment can be profound and may endure long after the abuse or neglect occurs, affecting various aspects of an individual's development. Yet, fewer than four in ten abused or neglected children and families receive necessary services and supports to overcome challenges.
