Voices to Vision Initiative
In 2012, the Children’s Bureau held a series of workgroup meetings with child welfare stakeholders—including professionals, Tribal workers, youth, and families—to discuss a vision for the future of child welfare. The meetings culminated in the creation of Voices to Vision: The Future of Child Welfare in America. This synthesis of stakeholder input and the Children’s Bureau response lays out strategies for improving the child welfare system and outcomes for children and families.
