Designed for Children. Driven by Outcomes.

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:

  • Accelerating learning for front-line staff
  • Empowering the workforce as they manage cases, and
  • Thinking strategically with agencies about the choices they face in managing child welfare.
Empowering the workforce. Accelerating Learning. Thinking Strategically
