New York Special Child Welfare Advisory Panel Final Report
Information Subscription Resource - Proxy Access CUNY Access

The Special Child Welfare Advisory Panel of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, created by the 1998 Marisol class action suit, has spent two years examining the work of New York City's Administration for Children's Services (ACS).  This panel reviewed the operations of ACS, consulting with caseworkers, managers, lawyers and other advocates, birth parents, and foster families.  The settlement agreement assigned the Panel the task of determining whether the ACS was acting in good faith in making efforts toward reform in the operational areas of New York City's child welfare system being reviewed.
