This article argues that workforce development is one key to improved outcomes for abused and neglected children and their families. Workforce development can be a life and death issue for some of the most vulnerable populations. Thus, it underlines that key funding streams are needed to foster investments in building and sustaining the social work workforce.  The article also emphasizes the efforts to advance the leadership role of social workers to address the challenges of the most vulnerable children and families as well as the aging. Here the efforts to promote service innovations related to vulnerable children and families are offered and a brief overview of implications for gerontological social work is presented.
