Welcome to Florida Foster Care Review!
Florida Foster Care Review (FFCR) harnesses the power of community volunteers to advance the safety, stability and success of abused and neglected children by connecting them to essential services, healthy relationships and forever families.
To achieve its mission, Florida Foster Care Review recruits, trains and supervises volunteers who, as part of the Citizen Review Panel (CRP), review cases of youth in foster care to ensure that they are safe and receiving needed services. Together with child welfare professionals, FFCR also works to ensure that children and youth leaving the foster care system have someone they can call family. Through all its programs, Florida Foster Care Review tracks and analyzes outcomes in order to advocate for system changes that improve children’s lives.
Florida Foster Care Review facilitates comprehensive, individualized case review hearings for children and youth in foster care.
