The U.S. Children's Bureau conducts Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSRs) in partnership with state child welfare systems in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. CFSRs enable the U.S. Children's Bureau to assess conformity with federal child welfare requirements, determine child and family experiences while receiving state child welfare services, and help states identify agency and program strengths and areas for improvement. Statewide data indicators are used in the evaluation of child outcomes related to safety and permanency. CFSRs also focus on child and family well-being as well as systemic requirements.
