Family-based Care Improves Outcomes for Children

Every child deserves to grow up in a home where they are a part of a loving and nurturing family. In the unfortunate instance where a child is removed from the home due to abuse or neglect and placed in the foster care system, there are two primary options for placement: a family-based setting or a group home or institution, often referred to as “congregate care.”

Research shows that children and youth living in family-based foster care have better short-and-long-term outcomes than their peers placed in a congregate care setting. Family-based placements allow for children and youth to benefit from additional close relationships and social supports, higher educational achievement and increases their chance of finding a permanent home.    

To learn more about why family-based care is a better choice for our children and the commonwealth, check out our latest report, Congregate Foster Care in PA.
