From Data to Practice: The Impact of Placement with Family on Safety, Permanency, and Well-Being

Casey Family Programs has a long and successful history of supporting families and valuing kinship care (placement with relatives) as a preferred option for children when they cannot stay with their biological parents.

This report – the second volume of the From Data to Practice series – presents a set of data and directions that confirms this meaningful history and asserts that we are on the right trajectory. It further affirms our commitment to fully adhere to the principle of the centrality of family and cultural relevance in decision-making for all children — a principle that is at the core of the Indian Child Welfare Act.
