FAMILIES IN NEED
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.
Join us to organize and advocate for children and families. Let's change NYC's child welfare system.
CWOP’s priorities are community organizing, community education and parent advocacy.
Join us for Parent Self-Help, Healing and Support Group sessions each Thursday; 11:00am-1:00pm and 6:00pm-8:00pm. Advance sign-up is required.
CWOP is a tireless defender of the rights of children and families in New York City. Through organized involvement and collective advocacy, we are transforming the services provided to our city's families through the New York City child welfare system.
Teach-Ins: Teach-Ins/workshops for parents of the citywide community who have been affected by the child welfare system.
Outreach Education:Parent organizers go onto the streets to inform families of their rights.
LEARN ABOUT BECOMING A PARENT ORGANIZER
Parents who are effected by the city's child welfare system need to advocate and help others in need. Becoming a CWOP parent advocate is empowering. You are helping families in need and giving them the tools they need to be successful.
