About Us


California has the largest child welfare system in the nation.

The California Child Welfare Co-Investment Partnership is a collaboration of private and public organizations working to improve outcomes in the child welfare system. The Partnership comprises five philanthropic organizations (Casey Family Programs, Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Stuart Foundation, Walter S. Johnson Foundation, and Zellerbach Family Foundation), the California Department of Social Services, the Judicial Council of California, and the County Welfare Directors Association. The partners meet regularly to share perspectives on federal, state, and local policy, and to coordinate investments needed to improve the child welfare outcomes of safety, permanency, and well-being.
