2011 Annual Report of the Foster Care Review Board. This report, submitted pursuant to 1997 PA 170, § 9, provides an overview of the review board’s functions and program activity details from this past year. Included are data, trend summaries, and observations gleaned by the board during 2011 from the review of cases involving over 1,100 children in foster care. These reviews were conducted by 192 dedicated and well-trained citizen volunteers. The information obtained from case reviews provides an objective, third-party evaluation of the care that Michigan’s foster care system provides to abused and neglected children. This year’s report and recommendations address significant issues related to parent-child visitation and its impact on child well-being and timely reunification for children in foster care.
