Childworks Mission

Childworks serves as the Washington, DC-based advocate for organizations striving to improve the lives of children, youth, and families in the U.S. and around the world. We believe that every child, family and community deserves quality health, education and social services, and should have a voice in how these programs are developed and delivered. We help our clients achieve these goals by providing expertise in policy analysis and development, legislative and regulatory advocacy, and program development and implementation.

Our team can act as your organization’s eyes, ears, and voice to monitor and influence federal government policymaking. While we specialize in assisting child and family health organizations based outside Washington, we also work on behalf of local groups and grassroots organizations lacking the capacity to meet their policy-related needs. We represent clients on an ongoing basis or as temporary partners to address an immediate issue in Congress or the executive branch.

Our Team

Childworks professionals have over 50 years of collective experience. Our low overhead and mobility allow us to offer our services on an exceptionally cost-effective basis, and we have the flexibility to expand or contract our lobbying and advocacy operations according to each client’s particular needs.
