Key Findings from Round 2 of the Federal Child
and Family Services Reviews
Monday, June 18, 2012
1 p.m. ET/ noon CT/ 11 a.m. MT/ 10 a.m. PT
This webinar presents key findings from the analyses of state performance during the second round of Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSRs) conducted during Federal Fiscal Years (FYs) 2007–2010. The purpose of the CFSRs is to help states improve safety, permanency, and well-being outcomes for children and families who receive services through the child welfare system. The CFSRs are an important tool that enable the Children’s Bureau to: (1) ensure conformity with Federal child welfare requirements; (2) determine what is actually happening to children and families receiving child welfare services; and (3) assist states in enhancing their capacity to help children and families achieve positive outcomes. This presentation provides a national picture of the strengths and areas needing improvement determined by the CFSRs and enhances an understanding of the practices associated with high performance. It also touches on specific topic areas of interest to state legislators and the importance of quality improvement between rounds.
