Comprehensive Child and Family Assessment (CCFA)

The CCFA is a public/private strategy developed with the goal of improving the well-being, permanency, and safety outcomes for children in foster care through comprehensive assessments. The CCFA serves as the foundation for case planning decisions and for making recommendations to juvenile courts. The CCFA also provides children and families with the opportunity to receive appropriate services and to have successful outcomes.

WA services are intended to promote safe and stable families as well as facilitate early reunification and/or permanency for children in care. As children enter care, the need for WA services are determined as part of the CCFA.
