Promoting Peer Support in Child Welfare

Peer support programs offer services and support delivered by individuals who have been through similar experiences - such as navigating the child welfare system or caring for relatives. However, despite their demonstrated efficacy and their unique ability to build trust with children and families, most peer support programs serving families in and around child welfare cannot access the key funding and support opportunities available to other programs. This Generations United resource explains what peer support looks like in child welfare and provides evidence of the effectiveness of peer support.
