This report uses Round 3 (2015–2018) CFSR results to understand how, how often, and how well child welfare systems helped to promote and preserve children’s connections in four areas: with parents; with siblings; with extended family; and with children’s community, culture, school, and friends. In each area, data from Round 3 of the CFSRs provides information about state child welfare systems.
This addendum supplements the Child and Family Services Reviews Aggregate Report for Round 3 (FYs 2015–2018).
