Concluding Report [of the Special Child Welfare Advisory Panel].
Annie E. Casey Foundation, Baltimore, MD.
This document is the last in a series of reports issued by the Special Child Welfare Advisory Panel of the Annie E. Casey Foundation over the past 3 years. The Panel reviewed the operations of New York City's Administration for Children's Services and its efforts toward reform. The Panel was created as a mechanism by which parties to a lawsuit, Marisol v. Giuliani, were able to suspend their differences in favor of a more affirmative effort to work together to further child welfare reform in New York City. This report addresses the major challenges facing the new city administration and identifies strategies it can use to confront these challenges. It begins by examining the role of the mayor in supporting continued child welfare reform, proposing a series of steps to demonstrate continued commitment from City Hall to the child welfare reform effort. It goes on to review the fundamental strategies that must be pursued to create continued progress, examining what each strategy means in practical terms, why it matters, what has been accomplished in the past several years, and what remains to be done. After describing the role of some of the other key stakeholders (e.g., the state government) in this system, the report offers future advice for leadership and accountability in this effort. (SM)
