ACAF 2019 Report: Celebrating Everyday Change-Makers in Child Welfare

On June 26th, the All Children - All Families team released our first-of-its-kind report highlighting more than 70 child welfare agencies across the country that partnered with us to improve the services they provide to LGBTQ youth and parents. These organizations serve more than 350,000 clients annually in 23 states, and employ nearly 11,000 individuals. 

The agencies featured conducted an internal self-assessment, provided professional development to staff and implemented ACAF’s Benchmarks of LGBTQ Inclusion, which track policy and practice changes within agencies.

The report features agencies in three Tiers of Recognition, which celebrate the strides agencies have made toward becoming fully LGBTQ welcoming and affirming.
