Citizen Review PanelOUR MISSION

To facilitate citizen participation and provide opportunities for citizens to partner with local child protection systems to ensure that these systems:

  • Provide the best possible service
  • Prevent and protect children from abuse and neglect
  • Meet the permanency needs of children

OUR PURPOSE

To examine policies, procedures and practices of State and local agencies and where appropriate, specific cases to evaluate the extent to which State and local child protective services system agencies are effectively discharging their child protection responsibilities.




Citizen Review Panels provide opportunities for members of the community to take an active role in protecting children from abuse by partnering with county agencies and the Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF) to identify resources and strategies to improve Pennsylvania’s child welfare system.
