Mission Statement

Our Mission
We provide a citizen voice on the safety, stability, and supervision of children in foster care through impartial case review and advocacy.

Our Vision
Citizens will shape public policy and actively promote conditions to ensure that every child lives in a safe, secure, healthy, and permanent home, preserving families whenever possible.

Description

V olunteer board members commit one regularly scheduled, full working day per month to conduct reviews and another 3 to 6 hours reading case material before the reviews. Materials are sent to volunteer board members seven to ten days in advance. Because the materials are confidential, volunteer board members return them to their field staff member on the day of the review.

In addition to reviewing individual cases of children in substitute care, the CRB studies and recommends improvements in foster-care policies, procedures, and laws.

Because we value and embrace a greater diversity of cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds, we seek people from all walks of life and with differing backgrounds or areas of expertise. The primary qualifications are

  • interest in the welfare of children and families,
  • ability to maintain confidentiality and cope with sensitive and emotional cases, and
  • availability to attend reviews regularly.
