Child Safety Plan

""We have found that when child abuse is confirmed in a foster home, there were usually warning signs that something was wrong long beforehand. Communication breakdowns between staff allow concerns to grow without intervention. To fix this communication issue, reviews are now required for all reports of abuse in foster families. Right now the problem is there is no way to know if the reviews are happening or if staff are following up with families when there are warning signs. There is also no way to know if the reviews are having an impact to reduce abuse in foster care. This project will create a way to track if reviews are being done, and whether or not those reviews are making foster care safer.
