The Children’s Bureau has recently announced a new Child Welfare Information Gateway. This service combines the services that were formerly provided by the National Clearing House on Child Abuse and Neglect Information and the National Adoption Information Clearinghouse website resources.
This change promises to provide easy access to the programs, research, statistics, laws and policies and training resources in one place. The Child Welfare Information Gateway is designed to be an easy connection for information and resources for meeting the safety, permanency and well-being of children and their families.
The Child Welfare Information Gateway offers information and resources on a wide number of topics including domestic and intercountry adoptions, search and reunions as well as family preservation and child abuse prevention. The Information Gateway also offers free services and the latest information including:
- An online library of over 48,000 documents www.childwelfare.gov/library
- More than 130 Information Gateway publications www.childwelfare.gov/search/pubs_search.cfm
- Customer service center with knowledgeable staff available Monday through Friday to answer questions. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1.800.394.3366
- Free subscription services www.childwelfare.gov/admin/subscribe

I spent some time on the site this morning and found it to be very user friendly and easy to navigate. The feel and colors are much calmer and the information is easier to see then the old formats were. The Child Welfare Information Gateway is a wonderful improvement over the former services.
