NYC Child Welfare Impact Data

Overview

Good information about how child welfare is impacting a neighborhood can help local leaders, community groups, families and elected officials build community practices and advocate for investments that support neighborhood and family health. Over the coming months, FPP will be sharing data briefs that offer new information about who is impacted by child welfare, where, why and how.

FPP works from the perspective that child welfare involvement emerges as a symptom when communities are under stress and duress. Decades of racist economic policies and community disinvestment have led to neighborhood health inequities that make family life precarious. Our goal is to offer data clarity that can contribute to efforts to address over-reliance on the child welfare system and under-investment in communities.
