October 2008Vol. 9, No. 8Welcome to the New <em>Children's Bureau Express!</em>

Children's Bureau Express has been a trusted source of news from the Children's Bureau for more than 8 years. While we've periodically updated our "look" during that time, this latest version qualifies as more than just a facelift.

The new Children's Bureau Express (or CBX, for short) features more content reflecting Children's Bureau priorities, including a message from the Children's Bureau Associate Commissioner with each issue. You'll also find more prominent placement of news from the Children's Bureau Training and Technical Assistance Network, Quality Improvement Centers, and grantees, as well as other Federal Government child welfare news.

Still, we've kept many of the features that our readers have come to rely on, such as news on practical tools and strategies, the latest research, and many other resources to help child welfare professionals in their work. Other useful features on the CBX website include:

  • Easy access to articles from past issues through our keyword "Search"
  • An attractive printable version, for taking CBX on the road
  • The ability to easily share CBX with colleagues, through the "Email this issue" function
  • Opportunities to provide feedback or story ideas by clicking on "Make a suggestion"

So, welcome to the new CBX! We hope you'll find it more readable, more attractive, and easier to navigate than ever, and we invite you to let us know what you think. (Email us at or click on the "Make a suggestion" link in the left navigation bar.) We welcome your comments and ideas and look forward to providing you with child welfare news from the Children's Bureau and around the country in the months and years to come.
