Pew Commission on Children in Foster Care

The Pew Commission on Children in Foster Care was established to develop recommendations to improve outcomes for children in the foster care system. The Commission was announced on May 7, 2003, as an independent, nonpartisan body with the goal of developing effective and practical recommendations to improve the foster care system. On May 18, 2004, the Commission released its report, Fostering the Future: Safety, Permanence and Well-Being for Children in Foster Care. The report contains policy recommendations to Congress, states, and communities about ways to improve existing federal financing mechanisms to facilitate faster movement of children from foster care into safe, permanent families and to reduce the need to place children in foster care. The report also contains recommendations to improve court oversight of child welfare cases to facilitate better and timelier decisions affecting children's safety, permanence, and well-being.
