Description: The new direction in New York City child welfare is all about careful investigation and informed decisions, neighborhood-based social programs for overstressed families, and shared responsibility across agencies and communities for helping parents keep their homes together. But the city’s child welfare system is undergoing wrenching—and necessary—adjustments as part of this rebirth. Community-based, preventive family support services are managed by nonprofit agencies that haven’t seen even a cost of living increase in five years.The neighborhood-based system of responsible oversight and shared case support is still very much under construction. And many nonprofit foster care agencies are having a hard time remaining fiscally stable as the number of children in foster care declines. If the system aims to build and reinforce a more productive and more humane way of protecting children and strengthening families, change must be made with care. This report includes a short list of recommendations from the Child Welfare Watch advisory board, based on our reporting and research.
