Point in Time/In Care

These reports include all children who have an open child welfare or probation supervised placement episode in the CWS/CMS system.

NOTE: With the Quarter 4, 2016 data extract, the placement type categories for this report have been updated to reflect implementation of the Resource Family Approval (RFA) process. For a complete list of the new placement type categories and the corresponding CWS/CMS codes, please click here or on the Methodology link below, then the Placement Type link.

There are issues with these placement type data:
(1) A small number of placements are reported as RFA placements before RFA implementation in the indicated county. In these cases, the facility type as of the Q4 16 extract is being reported, rather than the facility type that was in effect at the reported date.
(2) Most, if not all, placements in RFA FFA-Non Relative homes are actually placements in regular FFA homes, incorrectly reported as being in RFA FFA homes. There are efforts underway to correct both these issues.
