Sparking significant, measurable, and enduring transformation in child welfare systems is the focus of the Child Welfare Strategy Group (CWSG), Casey’s intensive strategic consulting team.

In 2010, Casey centralized the Foundation’s technical assistance, training, and management consultant expertise to form the Child Welfare Strategy Group (CWSG). This group brings together Casey's former Center for Effective Child Welfare Practice, the Family to Family Initiative, and Casey Strategic Consulting Group.  CWSG uses an intensive, embedded consulting model, closely collaborating with clients to:

  • strengthen agency management, operations, policy, and frontline practice;
  • focus public officials, policymakers, providers, advocates, communities, and families on creating responsive systems and supportive communities for vulnerable children and families and fragile parents and caregivers; and
  • improve outcomes for children and families with a focus on lifelong family connections.
