Based at the University of Maryland, College Park, the Casey Journalism Center on Children and Families (CJC) is a nonprofit program administered by the Philip Merrill College of Journalism. The CJC is funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Freddie Mac Foundation, and a number of individual donors. The CJC provides numerous fellowship and training opportunities for new and experienced journalists, and visitors with an interest in such programs can look over their offerings in the "Fellowships/Training" section. The CJC also gives out an annual award for meritorious journalism, and visitors can read each year's winning investigative pieces on the site as well. As might be expected, the site contains a "Resources" section for working journalists who write on topics like child neglect, violence, and public support systems. Visitors to these respective areas will find links to statistical sites, brief summaries of relevant data, and links for locating experts and external resources.
