Foster Care Review
Review provides for a periodic check on every child in care at least every six months, providing an opportunity to monitor the safety, progress toward permanency, reasonable efforts toward permanency and decision-making process and time frames now required by ASFA. Review captures both quantitative and qualitative information about individual children in foster care, information not readily available through any other existing mechanism. Once customized and used by decision-makers, this information becomes a valuable resource to improve practice and develop responsive policies and budgets. The results are better decisions, compliance with the intent and requirements of ASFA, and improved outcomes for children in foster care.
