ABOUT US

Formed in 1979, WVCCA is an association of professional service agencies that operate a wide variety of behavioral health and child welfare programs throughout West Virginia. Our role is to provide a voice for the most vulnerable and difficult children who have experienced abuse, neglect, emotional and behavior challenges, substance abuse and/or delinquency. Our vision is to lead the way in inspiring others to help children and their families.

MISSION & VISION

Our vision is to lead the way in inspiring others to help children and their families.

TAKING A STAND

We pledge to take a stand for our kids by championing quality behavioral health and child welfare programs found right here at home, supporting the dedicated providers who care for our children in need, and working together to provide care for our kids within our state’s borders.

ADVOCACY ISSUES

We work with West Virginia’s child welfare and behavioral health stakeholders to eliminate policy barriers and day to day practices that reduce the effective utilization of in-state resources.

We strive to provide opportunities for West Virginia’s children and families to receive treatment and services in West Virginia, where they can remain in their communities, with their families, and connected to their support systems.

STRATEGIC GOALS

While proud of our 38 year history, our Association is progressive and we develop a comprehensive strategic plan every three years. Our goals include:

AGENCY QUALITY & SUPPORT GOAL

Establish and advance quality standards of care, share knowledge, and combine resources to promote healthy children and families in West Virginia.

PUBLIC AFFAIRS GOAL

Promote high quality care for children and families through legislative advocacy and influencing public policy.
