Introduction

Dear Staff and Stakeholders,

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. We value your experience and opinions. Your opinions will be carefully considered and will assist in establishing the next five year plan for the Wyoming Department of Family Services (DFS), Social Services Division. Completion of the survey is a way for you to lend your voice to improving safety, permanency and well ­being for Wyoming's children and families. The Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP) is a five year strategic plan that sets forth the vision and the goals to be accomplished to strengthen Wyoming's overall child welfare system. The 2020-2024 CFSP is being used to integrate results from a number of federal, state and citizen reviews, as well as other child welfare plans required to draw down federal funds into a single state plan. A singe plan assists in facilitating the integration of programs servicing children and families and will help create a full array of child welfare services from prevention and protection through permanency and well ­being. This plan identifies strategies DFS will implement to improve outcomes in safety, permanency and well ­being of Wyoming's children and their families.

Your answers and identifying information will remain anonymous and confidential. Again, thank you for your partnership in completing this survey so Wyoming can build a stronger Child and Family Services Plan.

The survey needs to be completed no later than March 6th, 2019.
