FOR THE CITY

For more than 20 years CWOP has devoted  its energy to organize and passionately advocate for children and families of New York City who are affected by the child welfare system. Progress is being made – still, there is much to do until all parents, who find themselves in crisis, are treated with respect and provided with information and supports that keep their families intact.

Reaching Out

Join us to organize and advocate for children and families. Let's change NYC's child welfare system.
