dc.description.abstractExecutive Summary: The Child Welfare Accountability Act of 2006 increased legislative oversight of the Maryland Quality Assurance processes in child welfare. The Act also provides a framework for the Department of Human Resources (DHR) to partner with the University of Maryland School of Social Work (UMB/SSW) to develop the Maryland Quality Assurance (QA) Collaborative. The purpose of the Collaborative is to evaluate quality ssurance processes and make recommendations for improvement. This annual report summarizes: (1) indicators of Maryland’s performance in promoting positive outcomes for children and families involved with the child welfare system and (2) recommendations on how to improve outcomes measurement in child welfare. A separate companion report entitled "Child Welfare Accountability: Evaluating Quality Assurance Processes in Maryland", describes and evaluates current QA processes. Acknowledgements: Report was prepared by faculty and staff at the University of Maryland, School of Social Work's Ruth H. Young Center for Families & Children and Family Welfare Research and Training Group in partnership with staff at the Department of Human Resources, Social Service Administrationen_US
