Child Welfare Reform in New York

Action Research works with many stakeholders in the New York State and New York City child welfare systems, including the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), the Family Court, advocates for children and parents, private service providers and others working to improve the lives of New York’s most vulnerable children and families. Our projects aim to improve preventive services that help preserve families and keep children safely in their homes; streamline processes to have children live with safe, loving, and permanent families—with safe reunification the first and best option; expand the foster care provider pool; improve the fiscal models to reward better outcomes; and enhance services and outcomes for older youth in foster care.
