We go beyond digital profiles to establish a transparent, highly structured process designed to identify a child’s best opportunity for family-based care.
Over 12,000 institutionalized children have been registered on CFS, putting them on a path to realizing their best futures. CFS goes beyond digital profiles to establish a transparent, highly structured process designed to identify a child’s best opportunity for family-based care.
Providing unprecedented visibility into a child’s life, including birth and health records, history of family and placements, CFS offers more than a profile. It delivers data that translates into action, whether that’s finding living relatives, prioritizing care or beginning the process to qualify prospective adoptive families.
In addition to being transparent and measurable, CFS drives extraordinary efficiencies relative to the first phase of the process: registering children. What might take years, takes months using CFS and the CFS mobile app.
Plans, which are created and controlled by central authorities, follow the principles of the Hague Convention: prioritizing reunification with immediate family followed by extended family, then domestic adoption and, finally, intercountry adoption.
BEB contracts directly with central authorities, giving them sole control and discretion over data and the decisions made through CFS. We serve as technical advisors and trainers, as well as an additional resource to assist in the collection of data. This is done through our full-time, incountry team members who are vetted and qualified based on the country’s standards.
Following the same protocols used by U.S. governments, the cloud-based CFS platform provides the most secure environment for data, which is owned by central authorities and accessed only by permission-based controls.
