Child & Family Services Review (CFSR)

The federal Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) for the state of Virginia enables Virginia to: (1) ensure conformity with certain federal child welfare requirements; (2) determine what is actually happening to children and families as we are engage in child welfare services; and (3) assists in enhancing our capacity to help children and families achieve positive outcomes. The CFSRs are structured to help states identify strengths and areas needing improvement in their child welfare practices and programs as well as institute systemic changes that will improve child and family outcomes.

The findings for Virginia are based on the statewide assessment prepared by the Division of Family Services (DFS), Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS), and submitted to the Children's Bureau on February 1, 2017. The statewide assessment is the state's analysis of its performance on outcomes and the functioning of systemic factors in relation to title IV-B and IV-E requirements and the title IV-B Child and Family Services Plan. The results of case reviews of 70 cases (44 foster care and 26 in-home cases) conducted via a State Conducted Case Review process in Accomack, Charlotte, Fairfax, Pulaski, Roanoke, and Tazewell counties, and the cities of Norfolk, Harrisonburg/Rockingham, and Richmond, Virginia, between April 1, 2017, and June 1, 2017.
