Over the course of the Family to Family initiative, the self-evaluation technical assistance team at the University of North Carolina and the University of California at Berkeley developed a variety of tools to assist grantees in their efforts to become self-evaluating. Among the technical assistance tools available from the Annie E. Casey Foundation are shorter and longer versions of a guide to self-evaluation that address such topics as developing self-evaluation teams, constructing data systems to track the experiences of children entering out-of-home care, building databases that encompass multiple systems that serve families and children, and using desktop mapping software to target services.  To obtain a copy of the self-evaluation tool in Acrobat® format, follow this link to Family to Family

State and local self-evaluation teams showed much creativity in developing reporting formats by which they share information about their progress in improving safety and permanency outcomes.  The following performance monitoring systems continue to be maintained in former Family to Family sites:
