Joint Council Partners
One of Joint Council’s primary strengths is our coalition of over 160 international, non-profit, child-welfare organizations. Collectively, Joint Council and its partners provide over $760 million in services to 2.1 million children and families in 72 countries. All partners of our coalition adhere to the Joint Council Standards of Practice with a goal of providing ethical services in the best interest of children and families.
