What is the Child and Family Services Review (CFSR)?
The CFSR is a Federal-State collaborative effort designed to help ensure that quality services are provided to children and families through State child welfare systems. The review identifies strengths and areas needing improvement in State programs and systems, focusing on outcomes for children and families in the areas of safety, permanency, and child and family well-being. This intensive review is conducted in partnership with all local districts and voluntary agencies and incorporates four components: Data Indicator Performance, the Statewide Assessment, the On-site Review, and the Program Improvement Plan.
OCFS received the final Child and Family Services Review report from the Administration for Children, Youth and Families in March. Deputy Commissioner Laura Velez details some of the findings and next steps.
OCFS is proud to introduce the new CFSR webpage and newsletter. This site is intended to share information with caseworkers, supervisors and administrators about improving outcomes for children, youth and families. We hope you visit this site frequently for the latest information on the CFSR.
