Citizens Review Board for Children

One Unified Volunteer Voice for Safety, Permanency and Advocacy

The Citizens Review Board for Children (CRBC) supports all efforts to provide permanence for children in foster care. This state board provides oversight to Maryland’s child protection agencies and trains volunteer citizen panels to aid in child protection efforts.

CRBC Mission Statement

To conduct case reviews of children in out-of-home care, make timely individual case and systemic recommendations; and advocate for legislative and systematic child welfare improvements to promote safety and permanency.

CRBCS Vision Statement

We envision the protection of all children from abuse and neglect, only placing children in out-of-home care when necessary; and providing families the help they need to stay intact; children will be safe in a permanent living arrangement.
