Every child deserves a safe and permanent family they can call their own.
At Accenture, we have reinvented our approach to child welfare. Where before we improved processes, now we focus on the larger task of leveraging better outcomes for vulnerable families and their children. We do this by placing families in the center of our work. Through this lens, we approach our work with agencies in the following ways:
How might we keep more children safe at home with their own families, reduce the number of children in foster care and reduce the length of stay for those that need to temporarily enter foster care?
Children in foster care in the United States
Children in congregate care in the United States
Reports of abuse and neglect every year
Number of children who die of abuse and neglect every day
Let’s put families and children at the center of Child Welfare services. Let’s empower agencies and caseworkers with breakthrough innovations to strengthen and inform their decisions to drive better outcomes. Let’s make a real difference—together.
