This month's "Associate Commissioner's Page" features a conversation between the Associate Commissioner and a 2014 FosterClub All Star discussing the meaning of permanence to youth in foster care. We also highlight the new AFCARS report.

Child Welfare Research

This month, CBX points to a research brief highlighting how consumers of child welfare research can access data from the field and use them to inform their work on issues related to vulnerable children and families. We also feature a bulletin examining national- and State-level disproportionality rates for children of color in foster care.
