October 2007Vol. 8, No. 9Children's Bureau CFSR Factsheets for Professionals

In order to increase key stakeholders' awareness of the Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSRs), the Children's Bureau has released a series of factsheets about the CFSRs written for related professionals. As States begin their second round of CFSRs, child welfare agencies can share the factsheets with each group to help promote further collaboration and involvement in the process. Factsheets are currently available for:

  • Governors
  • Courts
  • Legislatures
  • Mental health professionals

These professionals can use the factsheets to learn more about the history and purpose of the CFSRs and gain greater understanding of their own roles and responsibilities in the CFSR process. Each factsheet gives examples of how the CFSRs can be a valuable source of information for that group and describes specific ways to become involved with and support the process. Links and references for more information are also provided.
