At Casey Family Programs, we support and assist child welfare systems in their efforts to protect children and create strong families. Children do best in stable families and familiar environments. This gives them the best chance to grow into successful adults.
And that is best for all of us.
Services for children and families
We operate nine field offices in five states – Arizona, California, Idaho, Texas and Washington – that each year serve about 20,000 children in foster care, their families and young adults who grew up in foster care. We like to think of our field offices as proving grounds for developing and demonstrating effective practice models that child welfare systems may adopt themselves.
Consulting services for child welfare systems in the U.S.
We offer strategic consulting services at no cost to child welfare systems in most of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Our consultants assist in putting practices in place that will benefit those systems – and, in turn, the children and families they serve.
We educate state and federal policymakers on public policy that will help child welfare systems improve services for children and families.
We provide nonpartisan research so that child welfare professionals and policymakers can make informed decisions based on data and evidence.
We team with child welfare systems to eliminate systemic biases that contribute to the disproportionate number of children of color in foster care.
Indian child welfare
We engage with tribal communities to develop effective and culturally appropriate Indian Child Welfare programs.
Partnerships for change
We partner with community organizations, associations, philanthropies and corporations to promote effective child welfare programs. This helps nurture the broad-based support that encourages lawmakers and policymakers to take action on behalf of children.
