Mission Statement

The Foster Care Review Office’s Mission is to provide oversight of the child welfare and juvenile justice systems by tracking and reviewing children in out-of-home care, reporting on aggregate outcomes, and advocating on individual and systemic levels to ensure that children’s best interests and safety needs are met. Our Vision is that every child involved in the child welfare or juvenile justice systems becomes resilient, safe, healthy, and economically secure.

Description

The Foster Care Review Office is an independent state agency put in place by the Legislature in 1982. The FCRO has been given the authority and responsibility for reviewing cases of children in out-of-home care through Department of Health and Human Services, Juvenile Probation, or on a Trial Home Visit through DHHS, and making required recommendations regarding the plan for the child’s future (known as the permanency plan), services for the child and family, and the appropriateness and safety of the child’s placement (foster home, group home, detention facility, or specialized facility). Central to all recommendations is what is in the best interest of the child.
