NCSL Fellows Programs

NCSL offers a Child Welfare Fellows program that provides legislators and legislative staff a rare opportunity to focus intensively on prevention of child maltreatment in the context of state child welfare systems. Other NCSL fellows programs also relate to child maltreatment prevention because they address risk factors and interconnected policy areas where prevention strategies can be implemented.


NCSL acknowledges Chapin Hall senior policy staff for contributions to this publication. For full citations of research studies on child maltreatment prevention please see the additional resources linked above.

This publication was made possible in collaboration with Casey Family Programs, whose mission is to provide, improve and ultimately prevent the need for foster care. The findings and conclusions presented in this report are those of the author alone, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Casey Family Programs.
