The Data

Partners for Our Children’s Data Portal is a powerful web tool that provides access to data about vulnerable children and families who interact with the child welfare system in Washington State.

Partners for Our Children is also developing OLIVER™, a technology solution to enhance service delivery and data collection/analysis.

In July 2013, Washington State passed ESHB 1774. This bill requires the University of Washington, through Partners for Our Children, to use data from the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) and other state agencies to develop measurements for indicators of safety, permanency, and well-being in the child welfare system.
