Child Welfare social workers courageously step into difficult situations every day.

Their job is overwhelming, and their work with severely neglected and abused children often causes secondary trauma.

This reality leads to high turnover rates, which has a negative impact on youth in foster care.

Through our Socialight program, CFK connects you to a Child Welfare social worker for the purpose of providing encouragement, support, and courage to continue interceding for vulnerable children in our city.

Foster children with one social worker achieve
permanency, on average, 74.5% of the time
and only 17.5% of the time when there
is social worker turnover.
