New England Association
of Child Welfare
Commissioners and Directors (NEACWCD)

An association of child welfare agency leaders and staff members across the New England area

What We Do

We serve as a consortium of child welfare agency leaders and staff from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The public child welfare agencies in these states have a long standing and unique relationship with each other; shared learning in the region has led to system-wide changes and adoption of best practice. For more than 30 years, NEACWCD has facilitated a shared learning collaborative with the child welfare workforce development directors. Together we have enhanced curriculum development, coaching and supervision models, continuous quality improvement, authentic use of constituent voice and strategies for successfully on-boarding new staff, while supporting the learning needs of staff in the field.
