Abstract
The child welfare system operates as a joint endeavor of the public and private sectors, while in each state the roles of the sectors and the functioning of their relationship varies across a continuum. The system and the sectors operating within it face both facilitators and challenges as they face a future of serving children and families. In this article, leaders from national organizations with differing constituencies who operate as stakeholders in the child welfare system write essays on their perspectives on the future of public–private partnership in child welfare: the state agency; private providers; the courts; the frontline practitioner; the consumer; and the public and their policy-makers.
