Wisconsin Department of Children and Families

Protecting Children, Strengthening Families, Building Communities

Through their dedication and caring, professionals in the field of social work throughout the state have a positive effect on Wisconsin children, parents, and families. Touching individual lives, these professionals play a key role in how the Department of Children and Families helps children, youth, parents, and communities. In observance of Social Work Month in March, Secretary Eloise Anderson will recognize and honor Wisconsin's outstanding professionals in the field of social work.

The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) has joined the statewide campaign to strengthen children and families in a novel way – with the launch of a community-wide license plate campaign. In partnership with the Celebrate Children Foundation, DCF is calling on you to purchase a Celebrate Children license plate which supports increased access to education, programs and services designed to strengthen families across Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) recently expanded its communication channels to include a new Twitter account aimed at providing Wisconsin families, foster youth, agency partners, and interested citizens with timely information about DCF efforts to improve the economic and social well-being of Wisconsin’s children, youth and families.

“By providing this additional communication resource, we hope that families will have better knowledge of the services offered by the Department and our partners,” said DCF Secretary Eloise Anderson.
