If you had a case that closed during the calendar year of 2016, you are invited to take part in a research study titled, “Impact of Child and Family Teaming on Re-Entry into Child Welfare.” The purpose of this study is to understand the extent to which a Child and Family Team (a team comprised of a combination of professionals and individuals of your own choosing, such as friends, relatives, clergy, etc.), is helpful in supporting families like yours in successfully closing their case, reaching their goals, and in preventing re-entries into the child welfare system.

Your feedback is important and can help improve the process for other people who may come into contact with child welfare. I am asking for your help by taking this brief survey about your experiences with DCFS.  The survey also asks your experiences with your Child and Family Team, if you had one during the time your case was open with DCFS. This survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes. Your individual responses will remain confidential and will not be shared with anyone else. Thank you in advance for helping us understand the effectiveness of Child and Family Teams here in Los Angeles County. For your convenience, there is both an English and a Spanish version of the survey.  Please only choose one version.  

 If you have any questions regarding the survey or the study, please feel free to contact Madeline Roachell, at mroachel@mail.brandman.edu. Thank you for your time, support and candid feedback.
