The Diana Screen is Endorsed by the FFTA
There are over 400,000 children in foster care in the United States. Many of these children are survivors of abuse and the path that leads a child to foster care is almost always a difficult one. These children need special protection against additional harm.
Statistics on Abuse in Foster Care
The majority of foster parents are loving, caring individuals who open their homes and hearts to children in need. But there are men and women who represent a danger to children.
The Diana Screen® is a risk management screen that keeps children in foster care settings safe from sexual boundary violations and sexual abuse. Implementing The Diana Screen®, as an additional stage in screening potential foster parents and individuals who will come into contact with children, provides an added layer of protection for the children you place and your agency.
The Diana Screen®:
Whether you are the CEO, administrator, or social worker, we know that protecting children is important to you and that selecting the individuals who will care for these children is an integral part of that process. The Diana Screen® allows you to incorporate an evidence-based, scientifically validated screen into that process with minimum time commitment by staff.
