CPS 2.8 Exits from DFPS Custody by Exit Type, Avg # Placements, and Avg Months in Care FY2012-2021

This chart counts the number of children who exited from DFPS custody during the fiscal year, the average time to exit and the average number of placements while in DFPS legal responsibility. Children in DFPS custody are those for whom a court has appointed DFPS legal responsibility through temporary or permanent managing conservatorship or other court ordered legal basis. A child exits from DFPS custody when a court terminates DFPS legal responsibility or a youth turns 18.

Counties and regions are based on the outcome county.

A description of the different types of exits from DFPS legal responsibility is in the CPS Data Book glossary: http://www.dfps.state.tx.us/About_DFPS/Data_Book/Child_Protective_Services/Resources/glossary.asp.
