Child welfare agencies continually strive to achieve better outcomes by developing, implementing, and evaluating practices and programs. Monitoring and evaluation are essential activities for making informed decisions and guiding improvements. By assessing how well their interventions achieve desired results, agencies can make decisions about what to adjust, continue, expand, or phase out.
