This dataset contains demographic and case characteristics of children in foster care in Norfolk with the goal of adoption. The dataset includes the sex, age, race, placement, parental rights status and adoption status of these children. The data is from Virginia’s Online Automated Services Information System (OASIS). OASIS is a comprehensive system that tracks the day-to-day activities performed by social workers statewide and is the official case record system for foster care and adoption cases in Virginia.

This dataset details the work accomplished by staff at the Norfolk Department of Human Services with the goal of finding safe, permanent homes for children in Norfolk’s foster care system. This dataset is updated monthly.
