Subject:What is the most common assessment tool applied in child welfare?

Dear All, I am working with the GAO on a study regarding homeless children. I have suggested that they review the housing elements contained in NCFAS, because I have assumed (perhaps inaccurately) that NCFAS (also NCFAS-R and NCFAS-G) is the most commonly used assessment tool and that NCFAS provides a good reference point for them in better understanding such tools. It occurs to me that many of you might have a better, more definitive answer to this question. Thank you in advance for considering this question! -Ruthie Ruth White, MSSA Executive Director National Center for Housing & Child Welfare 6711 Queens Chapel Rd University Park, MD 20782 phone 301-699-0151 toll free 866-790-6766 fax 301-699-0152 rwhite@nchcw.org www.nchcw.org   Strengthening America's families through affordable housing.
