What We Do

TCCWB and local child welfare boards want people to be knowledgeable and concerned about prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect.

Members work at a grassroots level to develop programs that meet a community’s needs.

Child welfare boards may:

  • Independently or in collaboration with “rainbow room” groups work to meet the tangible needs of children receiving CPS services.
  • Host holiday celebrations and other special events for caseworkers and foster children
  • Provide support for family group decision making meetings, foster parent training, and foster youth conferences
  • Sponsor public awareness events to promote child abuse prevention and recruit foster and adoptive homes
  • Coordinate with courts and judges in pioneering solutions that support children and families and work to eliminate abuse and neglect.
