LATINO PRACTICE ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The Latino Practice Advisory Committee is a collaboration of the California Department of Social Services and the County Welfare Directors Association. The committee was formed to address the growing population of Latino children and families in California communities and the child welfare systems, and to facilitate the provision of culturally relevant services that respond to their unique needs. This site collects information and resources for child welfare agencies regarding Latino children and families, including research, policy, promising practices, and strategies for organizational improvement.
