Data Highlights

Unit: Percent

Foster Home Setting


Kin Placement


Non-Family Setting



This graph shows the percentage of children in different placement settings on the first day of each year. There are three types of family settings: kinship care, state-licensed foster homes, and privately-licensed foster homes. Non-family settings includes shelter care and group care.

Questions this graph can answer

  • What percentage of children in out-of-home-care were in a kinship care placement in a given year?

  • Have state-licensed or privately-licensed foster homes been more prevalent on the east side of the state (e.g., Spokane County) or the west side (e.g., Pierce County)?
