Mission Statement

The Kansas Child Welfare Professional Training Program (KCWPTP) mission is to promote the delivery of high quality, culturally responsive, family-centered services to children who have experienced, or are at risk of abuse or neglect, and their families. We provide competency-based training primarily to the child welfare professionals who serve them. We collaborate with other service providers to promote the delivery of competency-based training. We advocate for public policy and practice standards that reflect best child welfare practice.
