Child Welfare Information Gateway

The Child Welfare Information Gateway, formerly known as National Adoption Information Clearinghouse, was established by Congress in 1986 under the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1986 (P.L. 99 509). By networking child welfare, adoption related professionals as well as the general public; the Child Welfare Information Gateway (CWIG) promotes the safety, permanency and well-being of children, youth, and families.

The CWIG provides information, resources, and tools covering topics on child welfare, child abuse and neglect, out-of-home care, adoption, and more. Through CWIG you can access print and electronic publications, websites, databases, and online learning tools for improving child welfare practice, including resources that can be shared with families.

Child Welfare Information Gateway consolidates and builds upon the services formerly provided by the National Clearinghouse on Child Abuse and Neglect Information (NCCANCH) and the National Adoption Information Clearinghouse (NAIC).
