2015 State of Child Welfare

The 2015 State of Child Welfare report shows Pennsylvania continues to make progress in placing children into family-type foster care settings instead of relying on “congregate care” settings such as institutions or group homes. Research shows family-based foster care is more beneficial to a child’s long-term development and well-being.
