The federal Child and Family Services Review is designed to help states improve child protective services, foster care, adoption, family preservation, family support and independent living services, as well as measure outcomes for families and children, by identifying strengths and needs within state programs.

In collaboration with its stakeholders, the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) will develop and implement policies and practices that improve the lives of children and families in Virginia. This collaboration will serve as the framework for ongoing quality improvement practices. In an effort to provide ongoing quality improvement VDSS monitors monthly CFSR Data Composite reports. Links to these reports are provided below.

Virginia participated in the second round of the federal Child and Family Services Review in July 2009. The on-site portion of the review was held in three local departments of social services: Fairfax, Hampton, and Tazewell. Because Virginia is not in substantial conformity with all the outcomes and systemic factors invovled with the review, the Virginia Department of Social Services will create a Program Improvement Plan (PIP). The PIP implementation period will last for two years and will be followed by a non-overlapping year before the third round of reviews begins.
