Why pbc

Why PBC?

  • PBC promotes permanency and stability for children in foster care by:

    • Setting explicit performance expectations

    • Increasing resources and flexibility to achieve those expectations

    • Realigning contracts to link what we want for children in care with what we pay for

  • PBC enables DHS to manage referral according to the needs of the system


Permanency and stability

Permanency and Stability

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.


Returns to care

Returns to Care

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.
