who come to the attention of social services. These organizations constitute the Migration and Child Welfare National Network, (MCWNN), a dynamic group that has shown numerous accomplishments under the leadership of the American Humane Association, Annie E. Casey Foundation, American Bar Association, Immigrant Legal Resource Center, Jane Addams School of Social Work/University of Illinois, International Social Services of the United States, US Conference of Catholic Bishops/Bridging Refugee Youth and Children's Services(BRYCS), Casey Family Programs, and other national organizations.

"The toolkits provide public child welfare workers and other professionals with a basic understanding of the U.S. immigration system and an overview of how and when immigration issues may arise during the chronology of a child welfare case," said Yali Lincroft, a consultant with the Annie E. Casey Foundation and primary author of the toolkits.

The first toolkit, Child Welfare Flowchart, begins at the point of a child abuse report and continues through assessment, diversion or intervention, removal, dependency issues and permanency planning. At each stage of the flowchart, potential immigration issues are noted and explored.

The second toolkit, Immigration Status and Relief Options, is intended to provide public child welfare workers with a basic overview of the dynamics of the U.S. immigration system as it impacts their clients. It reviews immigration concepts and constructs and includes practical resources such as tips for accessing vital documents, facilitating communication between child welfare system workers and immigration legal counsel, and a summary of immigration relief options applicable to youths in dependency proceedings.

The toolkits are available as a free download at www.americanhumane.org/migrationtoolkits. To become a member of the MCWNN, pleas
