The Post Adjudication Review Board (PARB) is a group of informed local citizens that review juvenile court cases where a child has been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect of the child. PARBs function in an advisory capacity to the court by making recommendations focused on ensuring the best interests of the child are met and trauma is reduced by helping identify and remove barriers to permanency. It provides detailed oversight of the case including the identification of community resources. PARBs also identify, highlight, and address barriers as well as systemic issues that negatively impact the child welfare, court, and foster care systems.
