National Social Worker Month – Child Welfare

Deltek Analyst Aila Altman reports.

In this installment of Deltek’s month-long blog series honoring National Social Worker Month, we focus on one of social workers’ most consuming focus areas: child welfare.

In 1998, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released the first “Child Welfare Outcomesreport, which provides information on both national and state performance in the seven outcome areas listed below. States annually submit child welfare information into two national systems – the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) and the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS), which is used by HHS to populate the “Child Welfare Outcomes” and “Child Maltreatment” reports. Based on the latest version of this report, 763,000 children – or 10.1 out of every 1,000 children – were confirmed victims of maltreatment.
