FY 2012 Performance Plan and FY 2010 Performance Report (contained within the FY 2012 Congressional Budget Justification)

Publication Date: January 15, 2012


The mission of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is to promote the economic and social well-being of children, youth, families, and communities, focusing particular attention on vulnerable populations such as children in low-income families, refugees, Native Americans, and individuals with developmental disabilities.

ACF works in partnership with states and communities to provide critical assistance while helping families and children get on a path to success. For example, ACF programs help parents find jobs, find safe and supportive families for abused children, work with newly arrived refugees as they start their new lives in America, and work with troubled teens to leave the streets and find a path toward hope and opportunity.
