Building Bridges: Advocating for Survivors Involved with Child Welfare

Community-based advocates often work with families who struggle with multiple forms of abuse including child maltreatment. To advance their work with survivors of violence, advocates must understand the role of child welfare agencies, child welfare processes, and the differences and similarities between child welfare agencies and advocacy organizations. This session will focus on what advocates can do to build bridges with child welfare agencies that will enhance safety for families.
