In FY 2005, Philadelphia’s foster and kinship care system experienced an 84% increase in Permanency rate and a 50% increase in stability of placements compared to FY 2002.
While the number of permanencies has continued to rise, the percentage of returns to care within 365 days has continued to decline. Early FY05 data supports this trend.
