(As a national workforce shortage strikes child welfare, CWLA responds)
Here is an article I found on the Child Welfare League of America website. It deals with the staffing shortage that many facilities face. It gives, I believe, some very good ideas on recruiting and retaining good workers. I believe it is good reading for administrators looking to recruit and retain competent workers and also good reading for Child Care Workers for knowing what to look for in a good program.

The immortal Yogi Berra once said that, “You’ve got to be careful if you don’t know where you’re going ‘cause you just might get there.” When he tried to clarify this point he explained that, “If you don’t set goals, you can’t regret not reaching them.”.........

I have had several people ask me about the salaries of houseparents and other residential childcare workers. Until now, the only information I have known about was my informal survey. I have recently discovered that The Child Welfare League of America publishes a quarterly newsletter. In the Spring 2003 edition, they have a summary of a scientific survey they did of member agencies. They also will provide the complete results of the survey for a small fee. ADDITIONALLY, It would be a good idea to sign up for their newsletter, it has a great deal of information about the residential childcare field.
