In addition, we hope you will join us to celebrate Child Welfare Workforce Development Month throughout the month of September!

For agencies, it's a time to focus on how to better support and recognize your most important asset - the workforce.

For child welfare professionals, it's an opportunity to get refocused on the heart work. This is about remembering why you do this challenging work; learning new skills that will improve your impact and resilience; and finding ways to lift and support those around you.

More information about Workforce Development Month is available on our website NCWWI.org/CWworkforce.
