  • Children are more likely to safely remain in their homes while their families get much needed help
  • Children are more likely to be placed with family members when first entering foster care instead of an emergency shelter
  • When children are reunited with their families, they are less likely to be reentered into foster care
  • Children in foster care are faced with less moves
