Citizens Review Board for Children

The goal of the Citizens Review Board for Children is to review cases of children in out-of-home placement, to monitor child welfare programs, and to make recommendations for system improvement in order to enhance the management of individual children's cases as well as the administration of the system as a whole. As a result, children will be safe; be placed in stable, permanent living arrangements without undue delay; enjoy continuity of relationships; and have the opportunity to develop their full potential.
