Child Placement Review Board

The Child Placement Review Board (CPRB) was established to further the best interests of children who are in the care and custody of a placement agency through the intervention of the state, whether that intervention takes the form of foster care or adjudication under the Family Court system.

The Child Placement Review Board is an independent, citizen-based agency that has established Review Committees in each of Delaware's three counties. The Review Committees bring citizens of diverse backgrounds and perspectives to focus on the needs of individual children. Through the mechanism of regular, independent reviews, the State of Delaware seeks to foster permanency and emphasize provision of necessary services, education, and preparation for independent living.


The mission of the CPRB, a voluntary, citizen-based organization, is to advocate on behalf of Delaware’s children in out-of-home placements and to identify, address, and resolve systemic barriers to the achievement of timely permanency for these children.
