Story Federal Interagency Work Group on Child Abuse and Neglect (FEDIAWG) 4-1

Chapter 1   Collaboration

Graphic of a heart with the American flag across it
Federal Interagency Work Group on Child Abuse and Neglect (FEDIAWG) – The Office on Child Abuse and Neglect leads and coordinates more than 40 Federal agencies participating in the FEDIAWG.

This group provides a vehicle for staff from member agencies to exchange information about child maltreatment-related programs and activities and collaborate to maximize funding and resources. For example, as U.S. troops have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan during the last decade, the Children’s Bureau has worked closely with the Department of Defense’s Military Community and Family Policy’s Family Advocacy Program to provide child abuse prevention resources to installations and educate the civilian community about how everyone can help support and strengthen military families during a deployment.
