The Child Welfare League of America (CWLA), in partnership with Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund are working together to build the child welfare system's capacity to deal equitably and constructively with young people, family members, and employees who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning their sexual orientation (LGBTQ), with particular emphasis on those making the transition to adulthood.

CWLA and Lambda are uniquely positioned to initiate and integrate this positive transition within the system that serves America's most vulnerable young people and their families; we can lead while we learn. CWLA is the nation's oldest and largest advocate for children and youth, with a membership of nearly 700 public and private agencies, including every state child welfare system. Lambda is the country's oldest and largest civil rights organization for LGBTQ people and people with HIV and AIDS. Through our joint initiative, CWLA and Lambda are working to make life better for the LGBTQ young people, their families, and child welfare staff.
