This new brief crosswalks the six CHAMPS policy goals with the relevant measures from the latest round (round 3) of the Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSRs). The CFSRS are administered by the federal Children’s Bureau to monitor the performance of state child welfare systems.  The results of the latest round of reviews show that many states are falling short in achieving measures associated with family-based care, including measures such as placement stability, sibling placement, relative placement, services to foster parents, foster parent training and more.

The take-away message from this brief is that policy and programmatic approaches to strengthening foster parent recruitment, support and retention are needed to improve outcomes for children and youth in foster care and their families.
