Child Well-Being and the Pennsylvania PIP

Pennsylvania's Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF) recently published an update on their services and programs that promote well-being among children who are in or at risk for out-of-home placement. The breadth of articles demonstrates the cross-cutting among programs that has occurred as the OCYF strives to implement their Program Improvement Plan (PIP) and create change that will ensure the safety, permanency, and well-being of Pennsylvania's children and families. The articles in the January 2004 issue of Child Welfare Update cover such topics as:

  • A review of all regulations regarding children and families, as part of the PIP
  • Collaboration between physical and mental health systems in Pennsylvania's Medicaid
  • Funding for higher education for youth aging out of the system
  • Development of creative visitation plans for children in foster care
  • Federal audit of Title IV-E claims
  • The impact of a family group conferencing program for youth in the justice system
  • Pennsylvania's Family Centers and Fatherhood programs
  • Post-permanency services for adoptive families
