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
