Overview

Reasonable efforts refer to efforts made by State social services agencies to provide the assistance and services needed to preserve and reunify families. Laws in all States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico require the provision of services that will assist families in remedying the conditions that brought the child and family into the child welfare system.

Some commonly used terms associated with reasonable efforts include "family reunification," "family preservation," "family support," and "preventive services."
