Abstract: Serving Children & Families describes the distinctive characteristics of religiously-affiliated and church-related agencies in the social work practice field of child welfare services, from prevention services to services for abused children. It also presents case studies of actual practice issues and dilemmas, and describes how social workers can provide leadership in defining the mission, potential, and programs of these important agencies. In addition, it outlines models of innovative programs in church-related agencies, and articulates the distinction between integrating faith and spirituality in direct practice and in the organizational processes of an agency.
