A National Program for Comprehensive Child Welfare Services: A Statement Prepared by the Committee on Public-Voluntary Agency Relationships, Child Welfare League of America.
Child Welfare League of America, Inc., New York, NY.
A national program to achieve comprehensive child welfare services of high quality in every community (universally available and equally accessible to all children and parents as their legally enforceable right) is proposed in this statement. The proposal is based upon the premise that children have certain rights and that society must make multiple provisions to ensure fulfillment of these rights. Such a program is viewed as an integral part of a national social service program, and as one segment of a more comprehensive national program for children, families and communities, to which the country must commit itself if the rights of children are to be safeguarded and fulfilled. Specifically, the statement deals with the relationship of government and the private sector in ensuring the fulfillment of children's rights through a system of child welfare services; with the roles of government, public and voluntary social agencies and others in the private sector in providing these services; and with planning and financing of child welfare services.
