Child and Family Service Review Outcomes: Strategies to Improve Domestic Violence Responses in CFSR Program

Child and Family Services Review OutcomesThis guide can help state child welfare agencies who are undergoing a Child and Family Service Review (CFSR) to develop effective Program Improvement Plans (PIPs) for achieving safety, permanency, and well-being in domestic violence cases, and to identify or anticipate related technical assistance needs.

CFSRs evaluate public child welfare systems to determine how well they achieve safety, permanency, and well-being in difficult situations of neglect, physical and sexual abuse, and co-existing domestic violence, substance abuse, mental health issues, poverty, and community violence. Once the review is completed and the final report written, state child welfare stakeholders develop PIPs for their public child welfare system. Unidentified domestic violence or unsafe intervention in domestic violence situations may contribute to poor outcomes for families.
